THANK YOU FOR A SUCCESSFUL FOOD DRIVE  Key Club challenged the entire school to collect more than 2,000 items for Broomfield FISH, our local food pantry.  As a community and school, you not only answered the challenge but easily surpassed it by collecting almost 3,000 items!  So, the entire school was celebrated with a Donut Party for everyone.  Special recognition goes to our top 3 winners,  Mrs. Ferbrache’s Precalculus Class, Mrs. Thimsen’s Biology class, and Top Winner, Mr. Kain’s 8th Grade Algebra class.

THOUGHT OF THE WEEK: GRATEFUL CHALLENGES ON SOCIAL MEDIA  Starting on November 1, I begin seeing my friends on social media begin to identify what they are grateful for.  This is a challenge that I see every year.  Some make it all the way through and some falter after a few days.  What is most endearing is to see everyone take the time and reflect on what they are most thankful for.  I, myself, have not taken on such challenges because of the discipline it takes to remember to do one more thing in my day.  However, I never back down from the challenge of reflecting on what I have to be grateful for.  Though you may not see me post it on my social media accounts, I am always ready to answer because life is too short to not know and be thankful for what good people and things you have in your life! 

Have a grateful week, Jags!
