Music Monday- "ROCKtober!"



On this day in history...

On this day in 1947, President Harry Truman (1884-1972) makes the first-ever televised presidential address from the White House, asking Americans to cut back on their use of grain in order to help starving Europeans.



Today is the last day to turn in Geo Coupon orders and money to student store.  If you have already turned them in you can pick up your access codes.

Last day to order your Team Gray t-shirt during third period is tomorrow.  Bring $8 cash or check and be a part of team gray history! 

If you want to represent your 3rd period class on Monday October 26th in the Chalk It Up art competition, then pick up a sign up form from your 3rd period teacher or from Student Services.  Talk to your 3rd period teacher to find out when they are due.  


This Week

Harvest Festival is this Friday.  Start buying your tickets today at Student Store window.  Check out menu on School loop or posted around school.  

Friday is a Min. Day also.  Remind your parents, school is out at 12:30 p.m.  

Also, here is a quick reminder- on minimum days we do not have the 10 minute break between 2nd and 3rd period so please be sure you are not late to 3rd period.

On Thursday and Friday of this week all 8th graders who received a GPA of 3.0 and higher on their last report card as a 7th grader can pick up their reward sheets, stickers and dog tags at the booth at lunch.  We will do it one last day today.  

It’s time to test your spelling skills in our annual school Spelling Bee.  Participants at each grade level will compete against each other.  Then the 7th and 8th grade winners will battle it out for the spot in the district spelling bee.  The winner will have an opportunity to not only participate in the district spelling bee, but have a chance at the regional, state, and national contests.

KAMS Spelling Bee will be held on Wednesday, October 28th.  Come sign-up and get your list of words to study in Mrs. Richardson’s classroom in MJ7. You may also ask your English teacher for the list.

You must sign up and get your list of words by Friday, Oct. 16th  to participate in the contest.
