Posted on: Dec 5, 2017

Good morning, it is Tuesday, December 5th.  It is a day 3.  It is the 60th day of school.

Hey Middle School West, are you up for a challenge? Student Council wants to see if in ONE week, we can collect $1200.  Here’s why…….we will be donating the money to various causes in our community, like the Hanover Food Shelf, Caring for Kids toy drive, and Coaches vs. Cancer event. So look for that spare change……scrounge in the couch cushions, dig in the pockets, break open the piggy bank!

Attention all 8th graders: tomorrow during SNAP, you will attend a presentation in the auditorium on planning for your future in the high school and beyond. Please report to your SNAP teacher as you will head to the auditorium as a class.

The St. Michael Lions 2017 Drug Awareness Poster Contest runs through Friday.  Posters need to be turned into Mrs. Lapointe or the office by Friday. 

Students interested in SoarArts performances should pick up a flyer in the office.

Students interested in signing up for lacrosse should pick up a flyer in the office.

The 7th grade girls’ basketball A team had another convincing win to start the week.  After a sluggish beginning the Knights slowly pulled away for a comfortable win over Chisago Lakes.  The girls again showed balance scoring with many girls entering the score column.  Niki B. scored 9 points and Gabby V. had 8.  The team thrives on steals and fast break scoring.  There is still work to be done in the half- court offense.The B team  played solid defense and executed a nice pick and roll game in the win for the Knights.  Sam K. had 10 points while playing multiple positions on the court.  Emily Z. had 8 from her point guard position. Makiah K. had 3 points with a nice shot and free throw. Some of the 7th grade girls B team played Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted yesterday in a tough battle. The Knights fell to the Lakers 35-34, after leading until the final 30 seconds of play. Leading the Knights with stellar play was Julia W. with 6 points, 4 assists and 3 blocks.  Edie N. scored 7 points and Drew B. scored 2. The lady Knights went 6 for 10 at the line. 

The 8th grade girls Gold B team played a tough HL-W-W team yesterday. The Knights lost the game, but still came out with a few victories. Six players scored in the game including Sydney R.
