PENNIES FOR PATIENTS, which is a friendly competition between 6th hour classes, will begin today, November 6.  NHS students will be visiting your 6th hour class and asking for donations to help support leukemia and lymphoma research.  All money collected stays in St. Louis to help fight against blood cancers and search for a cure.  The 6th hour class that raises the most money per student will win a pasta party from Olive Garden.  So give your spare change to help support a great cause.

STUDENT QUEST CHRISTIAN CLUB will meet after school today, November 6 in E209.  There are refreshments and everyone is welcomed.  See Twila Harris for more information.

THE 22ND ANNUAL PALS SPONSORED WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL GAME is this Thursday, November 9 in the main gym.  Pregame activities begin at 6:00.  Admission is only $4 and all money raised is donated to the St. Louis Jr. Rolling Rams.  T-shirts and tickets will be on sale during all lunch shifts this week and the night of the game.  See Mrs. Kuhn if you have any questions.

HAT DAY will be held Tuesday, November 21.  Students and staff will be able to wear a hat that day for $1.  All proceeds will go to Ryleigh's Make A Wish trip.  Starting Tuesday, November 14 through Friday, November 17, Student Council will have a table set up at all lunches to purchase your sticker for Hat Day; stickers must be worn the entire day.

NEED CAFFEINE?  The STUCO Store will be selling hot coffee for $0.50 when bringing your own cup.

WORD OF THE WEEK:  This week's word is EMPIRICAL (em·pir·i·cal).  Empirical is an adjective, and it means based on testing, experience, and/or observation rather than on theory.
