Good Morning Talawanda. Today is Thursday, February 21st, 2019

NHS Members: we will meet on Monday after school in the upper Media Center.

The Setting Stone Coffee House is this Friday! Come out to see incredible and indelible, fantastic and drastic, creative and innovative performances by THS students! Tickets will be on sale all week for only $3! Pick up your ticket from Mr. Aerni in room 320—tickets go up to $5 at the door.

Students interested in the Environment and Natural Science Club: Bring in your plant starts to Mrs. Ruther today, right after school in room 224.

Seniors – Both the Oxford Community and Talawanda Scholarship applications are now due tomorrow, Friday, February 22nd.   Please see Mrs Roy to get a copy of your transcript or if you have any questions.

Talawanda’s Key club will be hosting a Smash Brothers tournament for charity on March 1st in room 301 from 3:00 to 6:00. The cost will be 5 dollars up front on the day of the tournament. Participants should sign up on the sheet outside of room 301. Anyone else is welcome to join. A cash prize will be awarded to the winner. For further details, ask Eli Walter, Shr-Hua Moore, or Kyle Hoefker.

Today we will highlight the Talawanda FFA’s primary source of charitable giving. They play FFA Basketball each February with monies raised to go toward Dayton Children’s Hospital. In 2018, FFA raised $1500 dollars, and in 2019, they’ve raised over $1000. The FFA’s tournament is this Saturday, Varsity has a 4-4 record, with JV at 6-2. The FFA also invites all faculty and staff for complimentary ice cream after school today and wants to remind student members there will be a cookout during lunch tomorrow.

And now for a message from the Yearbook

Birthdays for today: Keylon Griffin turns 16, John Jacobson-Whinery turns 17, and Ryan Henes turns 18. Also a special happy birthday to Mr. Brown.

And now for Student of the Week and Patty G

Nothing to talk about in terms of results today, but we do wish the best of luck to the 7 swimmers and divers headed up the road to Canton later today to represent Talawanda at the State Championships. No other team in the SWOC has sent more people to the state meet in one season. They will be there through the weekend, so we wish best of luck to the relay team of Ben Crowder, Rhyan Meyers, Blake Madden, and John Anzano. Also best of luck to Mercy Patterson, Sean Mondello, and Sam Hool. The competition begins later today, so we’ll be anxious to hear how they do.

And with that, no home games for today.

And that’s our broadcast on this Thursday. I’m Patrick Geshan. Thanks so much for watching and have a day Talawanda.
