March Papa Murphy Senior Students Mrs. Carrington nominated Lauraella Everhart. She is the most compassionate, hard-working senior I know. Lauraella plays tennis and is an even better student. She has a great personality and constantly supports others. On top of all she does here at school, she also holds down a job after school and fully dedicates herself to her responsibilities. Mr. Pummill and Mr. Holzwarth nominated Samuel Dunn. Not only is he a good athlete, he is an even better student. He is bright, insightful, friendly, and compassionate. He always demonstrates respect for authority and his peers, conducts himself as a moral, humble gentleman, and has a work ethic which is second to none.

We are very excited to announce this week's winners of the "Flying the P" award! Please help us in congratulating Lady Dragons' basketball team members Taylor Goss and Braelyn Oberle! Both Taylor and Braelyn were in the top 4 three point shooters in a field of 20 at the Regional to advance to the Sectional. Taylor then finished in the top 4 of 16 shooters at the Sectional to advance to State. Braelyn ended up in 5th place at Sectionals, just missing out on qualifying for state. Last night, Taylor finished in the top 4 of 32 shooters to advance to tonight's class 4A finals at Redbird Area. If she is the top shooter tonight, she will advance to the Queen of the Hill finals tomorrow against the winners of the other three classes. Way to go ladies!!!

Are you tired of popping your own popcorn or driving to the store to buy it? Then we have a solution for you! Our SkillsUSA chapter is selling popcorn that ships directly to your house already popped! There are a ton of witty options available. If snuggles is a quality you look for in popcorn, then there's an option for that called Caramel-Diem. Please help us out! Our chapter receives 50% of sales, and if we sell the most in Illinois this week, then we will receive a $1000 bonus! This would really help us be able to include more students in our chapter, take more to nationals, and then you know, feed them occasionally. https://dgood.co/1719243

This sales tax would be a new revenue sources for our schools. It will allow our district to maintain and improve facilities for our students and the public without raising property taxes. It will allow our district to provide property tax relief to our citizens. All people passing through and shopping in our communities will be helping to pay for the betterment of our schools. Even with the 1% increase (one penny per dollar) our sales tax rates will still be in line with other communities in Illinois.

Congratulations to our Papa Murphy's Award Winners: Ms. Swanson nominated Cole Russell. Cole is a diligent and respectful student. He shows up every day ready to learn and actively seeks feedback on his work. Cole has worked hard to improve his writing in our Dual Credit English course. He works well with his peers and is a class leader in behavior and engagement. It is a privilege to have Cole in class, and I would love for him to be recognized for the work he has done so far this semester! Mrs. Smith nominated Brandy Jackson & Maddison Clifton. Brandy and Maddison have stepped up to the plate to lead the Publications class. Both were selected as our editor-in-chiefs this year. They have been leading the class and making a lot of decisions for the yearbook. For instance, who gets what pages, and who will be editors. They have also selected different layouts and led discussions on how to choose an effective theme. I cannot wait to see how they put their heads together to create the 2018-2019 yearbook.
