Congratulations to junior Tabitha Nowakor guessing closest to the correct number of candy bars – without going over – in this month’s reading workshop incentive candy jar, sponsored by the high school library. This time there were 200 pieces exactly, but many of the close guesses went just over the mark. The entire contents of the jar, plus your choice of a free new book, await you in Ms. Bower’s library office, Tabitha. Thanks to everyone for playing, and look for December’s jar for a new chance to win in just a few days.

Students may get a pre-signed pass if they are not in an actual class this semester. If a student wishes to pick up the programming problem today, it must be completed by the end of the day Dec. 11.

Shoppers can choose a favorite and make a purchase with an associate right there in Room 520. Look for a new item next month and keep them in mind for your holiday shopping.
