Wellness Conference, April 26-7, 2012!

Attention students! Test yourself and win prizes!!

A list of questions or tasks will be posted on random days throughout the week in the announcements. Take your answers to the questions to Stephanie in the Social Studies classroom where you will be awarded points for correct answers. Your name will be added to a tally sheet where your points will be tracked. 10 correct answers will = 1 point. We will be awarding a grand prize at the end of the semester to the student with the most points – an Ipod touch!!!

Daily prizes will vary. Today, we will be giving away $5 gift certificates to Subway. We will also be giving away a “surprise”. All students who answer the following questions correctly will win! 2 points for TODAY ONLY will be awarded to everyone who answers all 5 questions. 2 points is the equivalent of having answered 20 questions correctly!!!
