**Student Council will be hosting the MORP dance on December 11th, after the home basketball game. The cost of the dance is $5. Our theme this year is Christmas, so wear an ugly Christmas sweater, dress like a Christmas character or wear green or red. Guest forms are now available for MORP and can be picked up from Mrs. Timmins in room E207. Forms are due back December 4th.
**The Great River Run is this Saturday, November 28th. Mr. Colona needs help with the road crew (physical work) and volunteers would need to arrive at Broadway and State Street in Alton by 6:30 am.
