You can also get a $5 ticket to the Friday Holiday Advisory where we will be providing snacks, drinks, and playing The Polar Express! Come to the commons during lunch to get in on these hot holiday offers!"

There will be a prize for the winning team!   This will consist of team games, minute to win it games, and ending the event in a team relay.  Go here to sign up a team:

·      Hey students! We hear Santa is working on his Nice and Naughty list!  Want to be sure your teacher ends up on his list and has to serve time in Santa’s “naughty cell” in the Commons area on Tuesday, Dec 13?   It’ll cost you – and all the proceeds will go to help our SECME group go on a college tour this spring!  Before school on Friday, Monday, or Tuesday, come to the Commons red brick “jail” area and fill out a naughty list nomination from the “most wanted teachers” posters you’ll see for whom you wish to see in the Cell in the Commons on 12/13.  Reach out to your friends to raise more money and increase the sentence!
      Here’s how it works:
o   To put your teacher in the Naughty Cell in the Commons will cost $1 per minute, up to the length of your class period (up to 80 minutes).
o   For “sentences” of 30 minutes or less, a sub will come to your class while your teacher serves his/her time.  For “sentences” of 31 – 80 minutes, the class will report to the Commons while the teacher serves his/her sentence.  
o   Due to space, we have to limit to no more than 3 teachers able to “serve sentence” at any one time.
o   All funds must be contributed by the start of school on Tuesday so the sentence can be verified by administration, who reserve the right to return funds if the sentence cannot be carried out for any reason.
o   You also have the chance to nominate your teacher for the “nice list!”  Get on their good side by contributing $1 for every 2 minutes to get out of their sentence!  Teachers will be notified how much was raised to put them in the cell and how much was raised to get them out! 

·      Plan now to attend our Musical Gryphons Winter Concert tomorrow, December 13, at 7:00 p.m. at the Knoxville Convention Center.  Admission is free.  Come and bring your friends!

·      We have a new student club forming for those interested.  The Student Secular Alliance will meet with Mr. Webb in room G006, on Mondays (beginning 12/5), from 8:50 – 9:20 a.m.  This is a student run club that will feature educational presentations and free-thought discussions.

·      Are you interested in math competitions? If you're up for the challenge, Mu Alpha Theta is hosting a math competition on Monday, December 12, at 3:30 PM in Room 207. There is no registration, so all you have to do is show up. It will only take about 45 minutes. There is no cost involved.

·      Hey everybody! Prom committee will be selling single prom tickets in the commons for $40 now through December 21st. This is the lowest price of the year!  Don’t wait, after Winter Break the prices go up!
