Can you believe we are already into the month of October? Wow...Homecoming next week and the Pumpkin Show in two more weeks...During Homecoming we will be celebrating Penny Wars - may the best class win! We also will be celebrating our Class of 2017 with a special luncheon which will be served by Mrs. Baumgardner and myself. Each day will be a special dress “down” day with a specified theme. Mrs. Baumgardner has provided that information to everyone...Next Friday we will have a Pep Rally at 1:45 PM to celebrate all of our student-athletes. We will also have our first Homecoming King and Queen.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone supporting our dress down day today. The funds from the dress down day will be used to refurbish the Pumpkin Show Float. Total today = $432. Super job! Our next dress down day for the float is Thursday October 15th.
“STATESMEN in Action” for this week include: Jacob Dearwester; Victoria Holbrook; Taylor Strawser; Niles Jenkins; Chase Stevenson; Alex Casto; Noah Blankenship; Breanna Anderson; and Paul Madden - Give them all a SHOUT OUT!
Academics: October 12-15 is Parent-Teacher Conferences. October 14th is pSAT testing for our 10th and 11th graders and our 8th and 9th graders are heading to Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU) to “Worldchangers.” The end of the first quarter is October 23rd. For our 11th grade parents, a summary for the Senior Capstone Course will be provided after the first quarter.

With the cooler weather upon us I wanted to remind everyone that the Varsity Letter Jacket is available. Students may purchase a letter jacket after they receive their first varsity letter. Confirmation of meeting all criteria for the letter jacket must be validated by the individual coach
Letter jackets may be purchased through Zides Company. The Point of Contact (POC) is Ms. Stephanie Cochran at 740-516-8283 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be aware of a 6-8 week turnaround when ordering.
The October Fruit of the Spirit is Joy. The character traits are compassion and servant leadership. The verses that apply are 1 Peter 3:8; 2 Kings 13:23; Galatians 5:13; and Romans 12:8. Remember our theme verse for the school year is: 1 Samuel 12: 24

Just a reminder that my door is always open!
Have a blessed weekend!
