Announcements 12-21-11

SACS Assembly

It was a big day on Tuesday for St. Albans City School, with many things to celebrate. The entire school gathered in the gym, as the Senior Band, led by Mr. Mehaffey, played them in. Students from Team Renaissance presented a banner to the Investigators team for being the team that donated the most non-perishable food to the Cram the Complex food drive. Mrs. Lucas announced the top ten students in the SumDog competition. Mrs. Cavallo introduced the new Estimators cup trophy and announced that Mrs. Dean's class from Team Triumph won the Holiday Estimators Cup challenge and will be able to display the trophy until the next competition.  Representatives from each of the 7/8 communities had a chance to speak about the fund raising efforts made by our school, such as the penny war and the October 7th and 8th grade dance, to benefit the people who were affected by tropical storm Irene last summer. They also were able to speak on how the school came together to decide that all of the money raised by our various fundraisers should go to benefit The Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont (NOFA-VT) because by helping the farmers, everyone in Vermont gets the benefit of fresh, local food. Finally, a check was presented by three third grade students from The Travelers team for $1866.14 to Enid Wonnacott, the executive director of NOFA-VT. She thanked the SACS students for the support and spoke about some of the devastation felt by local farms and how much they appreciate the support given to them by our school. 

News from Team USA
Team USA's students, Kaitlin, Dylan, and Tyler ranked 32nd out of 77 schools who competed in an online stock market game. The game was held from the beginning of September and ran through the beginning of December. These students managed their portfolios throughout an extremely tumultuous real time stock market season. Their equity was $ 100,447.61! Congratulations!

The Humane Society of Franklin County needs yours help. Items they need include: Canned cat food, cat littler, dog kongs, six foot leashes, ten to fifteen feet dog tie outs, and prowl (dehydrated food). Please place the items in the blue bin outside the cafeteria or down by Team USA. Thank you!
