Today is Monday, October 23rd and it’s a WHITE DAY.  


    Essex Middle School students and staff have been challenged by the students and staff at Founders.  This week, each school will be collecting change to donate to Aunt Dot’s Place, the new food shelf in Essex.  There will be two coin banks in the main office of each building. The jug with silver coins –nickels, dimes and quarters marked Founders Memorial School will be deducted from the Founders total.  At the end of the week, we will report which school got the most points. All of the proceeds will be donated directly to Aunt Dot’s Place.


    Basketball and Cheer sign ups are on the sports board by the front door. Please do not miss class signing up for these.


    There will be an informational meeting about the Weightlifting Club, on either Thursday or Friday this week after school.  You'll be able to catch the activity bus home.  No need to attend both, but you must either attend one or have a talk about the program with Mr. Pol.  Learning to lift will start Monday October 30.


    Cross Country results from last week are: Girls 6th out of 17 and Boys 4th out of 17.
