Donnell Announcements - October 12, 2017

-Student Forms:  We still have several students with incomplete Final Forms. Assistance is available here in the school.  You must have forms completed in order for your student to participate in extracurricular activities and field trips.  If you need help, please don't hesitate to contact us.

-Student Council will meet again on  Friday, October 13th at 7 a.m. in the Donnell Band Room.

-The 8th grade Iowa Test of Basic Skills and CogAT testing will take place Oct. 16-20. Attendance at school is highly recommended, please reschedule appointments so students are at school for the testing as this cuts back time out of classes for makeup testing. The data from the  tests are used to place students in 9th grade classes. Watch for a letter that your student will be bring home this week or find it on the Donnell Middle School counseling website.

-Parents if you are registering to be chaperones for the Washington DC trip, please remember that the cost is based on 4 people to a room occupancy.  If you don't want to share a bed and would like a double  occupancy or prefer to be in a room alone, that will cost more. Prodigy Student Travel can assist you in making those arrangements. Deadline for registering is October 27.  Your deposit must be made to be considered registered.

-If your address changes, please update your information on Final Forms and submit a proof of residency to the office as soon as possible. We don't want you to miss any correspondence sent from the school!

-The Chess and Board Game Club will meet on Mondays after school in Mrs. Long's Room 214 until 3:15 p.m.  Please bring your own chess game if possible.  We do have several board games available.  Come join in on the fun.

-Always be sure and check our online calendars for the most updated information about events that may be happening in our district/bldg. (fcs.org<http://fcs.org>)


-The 7th grade volleyball team lost to Fremont last night. They fought back in the 2nd game to nearly capture the win, but came up short. Lili Korecky had a great night of serving with an ace. Nora Crafts played a great game in the back row, also showing off her serving skills, and Avery Roach had 3 kills. With one more week left in the season the girls, look to a strong finish!

-The 8th grade volleyball team lost in two games to Fremont yesterday. They played two amazing games with an all-time team high of 14 kills as a team. Liz Crites had an amazing block against a tough hitter from Fremont. Sonoma Eynon scored 7 solo kills and was assisted by Liz, Abi Harjala, Kyndra Kinn, Marissa Bodi, Ashley Sterling and Abby Powell who each added at least one kill. Sydney Swisher and Eynon were strong in the back row with their defense. Sydney Eynon, Ashley Sterling and Sonoma Eynon were strong with their serves as well.  Great game, ladies!

- Students planning on trying out for basketball or participating in wrestling need to make sure all Final Forms are completed and that they have a completed an up to date physical. Students who did not play a fall sport need to give the physical to their basketball or wrestling coach prior to the first practice/tryout.
