THIS IS MOORE THAN A GAME! On September 20th at the home football game against Anamosa we will be selling Southmoore Strong shirts to help support Southmoore High School in Moore, OK. Moore was hit by a tornado on May 20th. Club Hope and both football teams will be selling shirts to raise money to send to Moore for victims and families still recovering from the tornado. Forms may be picked up in the office. Shirts are $15.00. Check out our video and spread the word! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZeqWMQBiYY
Any student in grades 6-8 who is interested in cheer camp should up a form in the office. Registration must be in by Sept. 10th.
Student Council will be sponsoring a Pet Food Drive September 17th through September 26th. You may drop off your items in the cafeteria from 8:00-8:15 or in Mrs. Ferguson’s room. For each donation you make you will earn a chance to win a football signed by the Maquoketa Football team or several Maquoketa T-shirts. This has been a great fundraiser in the past and our local Humane Society greatly appreciates all of our donations. Make this year another FABULOUS year!!
Parents – Please return any and all forms that you may still have at home. We are needing quite a few of the forms that were in the students folders that was given out at registration.
