7th and 8th grade Lady Marauders took on Byron last night in an MMAC showdown. The 7th grade took flight early and often in route to a decisive victory.
The 8th grade ladies also clipped the Eagles in the second game of the double header, taking a commanding lead early en route to a 39-25 victory.
The 8th grade is back in action on Wednesday at Mt. Morris, with the 7th grade off until next Monday.
We will be having another Teacher Trivia this afternoon so get ready to learn some surprising things about your MS staff!
Have a terrific Tuesday!
Today is Thursday October 15th, 2020.
Homecoming is tomorrow so let’s finish out Spirit Day strong with a Blue and Gold Day to show your OE Pride! No face paint or hair color please.
If you have already turned in an FFA application please come to the MS office after announcements.
The 8th grade Lady Marauders traveled to panther country last night and plundered away a lopsided victory that saw every Lady Marauder make it in the scoring column. Great effort and tenacity led the way to an early lead that would only expand as the game progressed. This dub brings the 8th grade to 4-2 on the season with two huge games next week against league leaders Montrose and New Lothrop on Monday and Wednesday.
- 7th grade is also back in action on Monday against Montrose.
Reminder to have your first hour students complete the Me and My Feelings survey today. This can be found in the google middle school counseling classroom. Please also include the MVP students for this survey.
And now in today’s tectonic plate news: Did you know that Hawaii moves almost 3 inches closer to Alaska every year!!! Currents in the Earth’s upper mantle keeps the tectonic plates in constant motion. Don’t all rush to Alaska for a luau though because the plates’ pace is comparable to the rate at which our fingernails grow.
Happy Thursday Everybody!
Today is Friday October 16th, 2020.
