Good morning, Talawanda! Today is Friday October 5th, 2018

Any 9th-12th grade girl interested in playing softball this spring, there will be a 15 min meeting in the cafeteria immediately after school on Tuesday, October 9th.  If you cannot make it, please see Coach Davie in Guidance before Tuesday’s meeting.

Reminder that there will be Braves for the Cure shirts for $12, and bracelets for $1.  They will be for sale during lunches and in Mrs. Gregory’s room all week.  The pink out football game is on October 12th, so make sure to purchase your shirt to support the braves, and help raise money for the side out foundation, and Luna cares.

Freshmen:  Don’t forget to sell candles to your family and friends!  If you sell 12 items, you get a free $20 candle!  The $10 gift card winner is already claimed, but the next 3 students to turn in seller packets will receive $5 worth of candy! Stay tuned for more prizes and keep selling! See Mrs. Sammons for questions

There are no home games for today but our football team takes on Mt. Healthy tonight on the road. The Owls come in with a 3-3 record having won 3 of their past 4, including a 28-20 victory over Campbell County, KY last week at home.  Keep in mind kickoff tonight is at 7:30, not 7 — and the students section theme at Mt. Healthy is a Neon Out.

And that’s our broadcast on this Friday. I’m Patrick Geshan. Thank you so much for watching — and have a great weekend.
