Good morning Swanson! Today is Friday, November 21st and these are your morning announcements:

Congratulations to the Girls Soccer team for their 5-1 victory over Kenmore yesterday! It was a complete team effort!
Thanks to all the STARs who participated in the Environmental STAR endangered animal model using recyclable materials contest. There were many great entries. Winners will be announced and prizes will be delivered to STARs on Monday.
Attention MathCounts participants. At yesterday's practice, students learned about a new competition opportunity for Saturday December 13th. If you are interested in learning more please pick up an information and permission slip from Ms. Partridge in room 203 during STAR or at MathCounts on Monday.
Schedules for Swanson Cabaret rehearsals can be picked up today at lunch. Copies will be placed in the cafeteria by the sign out book as well as outside the chorus room.

8th Graders: The Asian & Asian-American Lunch Group will be held today! We will meet in Mrs. Dykema’s room (257) during 8th Grade lunch, and all are welcome to join! You can get a pass from Ms. Chiu or Mrs. Dykema.
There will be a cast meeting for the Cabaret on Monday, December 8th, 2:30-3:30. Rehearsal schedules for Jan & Feb. will be given out at that time if not before. Soloists will practice with Mrs. Klontz by appointment in December. Please sign up on the music room door. 
Thanksgiving is approaching and the need for food and warm clothing is greater than ever! Please consider helping people in our community by donating canned goods and winter clothing. You may leave your donations in the boxes located at the main office or Embassy-4 (Mrs. Carpenter’s room). Last day to bring in items is now, Monday, November 24th.
A reminder to students: Backpacks are not allowed in the cafeteria or in classrooms. Small gym bags are acceptable. Cellphones should not be used during the school day (7:40-2:24) except for instructional purposes and under the direction of a teacher.
