Reminder to 8th grade band members and 8th grade team: The 7th and 8th grade bands will be having a combined rehearsal today (Friday) during 7th period and Excel. Please allow the 8th grade band to attend these rehearsals.
The Maquoketa Athletic Boosters would like you to consider volunteering your time at one, or more of the shifts available at this summers baseball/softball concessions. Last year our club profited almost $9000 from these concessions alone, and it isn’t possible without the help of our athletes’ families. Our club generously provides for our athletes every year and we could really use your help. Please click on the link and sign up for shift/s you are available for. Thank you in advance for all you do for our athletes. If you have any questions please feel free to email Sheila Pauls at email@example.com and she can assist you in signing up.
Any 8th grade student interested in football cheer should attend tryouts on May 13. Tryouts start at 8 a.m. and will end at noon. Please contact April Edwards at the high school if you would like more information or cannot attend.
The Community Service Squad is hosting a Penny War starting on Monday, May 1st and it will go until the 16th. Bring in any spare change to your lunch shift to help raise money for Jackson County Humane Society.
Rules to the Penny Wars are:
Pennies are positive for your grade
Any silver coin is a negative for other grades, so if you drop a quarter into a different grade’s bucket, that would take 25 points off that grade’s total
At the end of the day on May 16th, all points will be tallied and the winning grade will have a popsicle party sometime that week!
So start saving your change!
