Hey students! Did you know that every three minutes someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with a blood cancer? Pennies for Patients is a campaign that raises money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This organization helps the families of patients who have this disease. Our school has accepted the challenge of helping to find a cure for blood cancer! We are joining over 25,000 schools across the nation to make a difference and raise as much money as we can in the next two weeks. Please bring in pennies starting Monday, January 13th and give it to your 1st period teacher. We are going to see which 1st period can bring in the most money. You want to put pennies in your own boxes and silver coins and dollar bills in other 1st period boxes to give them negative amounts. The winning 1st period will receive a doughnut breakfast.

We are excited to encourage our middle school students to attend home basketball games, and cheer on our team! We want to ensure that our students, as well as members of our community, and those visiting Muscatine are able to enjoy these events.
Here are some additional reminders of expectations for our middle school students:
We encourage families to take a moment to discuss these expectations with students to ensure an enjoyable time for all community members attending the game and supporting our Muskies. Failure to abide by these expectations may result in removal from an event, and loss of privileges in attending future activities or events.
Enjoy cheering the Muskies as you support our team!
