Donnell Announcements - October 17, 2017

The Donnell Art & Craft Club will meet on Tuesday, October 24, after school in the art room until 3:15.  We will be painting mini pumpkins!  No need to bring anything but yourself! Hope to see you there!

-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.

-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. Please be sure your students get a good night's sleep on Sunday too!

-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 dominated Lima in a two-game victory last night. Their continued improvement over the course of the season really shined bright in last night's game. Middle Hitter Destiny Gertz had a huge block in the front row to shut down Lima's offense. Avery Roach had a season high of 7 kills! Riley Parkins, Nevaeh Baxter, and McKenna Hall also had multiple kills in last night's game. Neveah Baxter also had a personal record of 11 aces! Kelsie Ritzler, Liz Tisdale, and Riley Parkins also had strong front row performances. Birthday girl Madelyn Rakestraw was all over the court showing off her hustle and passing skills. Nora Crafts, Baylee Shoemaker, Maddie Schiltz, and Lily Korecky had a standout game in the back row and setters Ava Roach and Lauryn Boone had amazing sets all night. It truly was a team effort and every person stepped up to the plate for last night's win. Way to go girls! Come cheer the volleyball team on at Glenwood on Wednesday!

-The 8th grade volleyball team destroyed Lima last night in 2 games 25-16 and 25-16. Consistent servers were Sydney Eynon, who served 9 straight unanswered points, Ashleh Robinson, Abi Harjala, Kaydence Edgell, and Marissa Bodi. Kills were scored by Sydney Swisher, Liz Crites, Ashleh Robinson, Sonoma Eynon, Kaydence Edgell, Ashley Sterling and Abby Powell.  The Trojans played like a team and did a great job!

- 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.  Physicals are to be printed off from the student's final form website.

Parents - please do not pick up or drop off any car riders on Baldwin Avenue.  All car riders should be dropped off and picked up on Lime Street.
