Rules

Each LITT class will have its own collection jar.  Gain $ for your LITT (and grade level) by adding pennies to your jar. Lower the total of other LITT classes/grade levels by adding silver coins and dollars to their jars.  As an example, just one quarter cancels out 25 cents worth of pennies in the jar. Pennies, coins, and dollar bills can be placed in LITT jars before/after school.  


MONEY RAISED WILL GO TO THE NORRIS BACKPACK PROGRAM!TIS THE SEASON TO GIVE!!


7th grade girls going out for basketball your sweatshirt money is due to Coach Halvorsen next Wednesday 12/18. 



We have several Apple TVs (Gen. 2 models) for sale in the High School.  $25 each.

They include a power cord and remote. We are also including HDMI cords for hooking them to your TV.

The units have been tested and factory reset.  They will still work well for airplay as well as a few of the apps (YouTube, etc...) for playing content to a TV.  (They hook up to a TV via an HDMI cord.) Once connected to your home WiFi you can mirror your IOS devices (iPhone, iPad, etc..) or your Mac to this device wirelessly so you can "cast" it to your TV.

You can purchase these items from the Central office in the HS (Down the freshman hallway.) or the tech cave located directly across from the central office. (Must have cash or check.) 


ALL 7th and 8th Grade Boys and Girls are invited to the High School Weight Room for workouts on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:35-4:30.  Please find Coach Heiss or Coach Twarling when you get there. We look forward to seeing you there!
