Blue Day – Tutoring
Juniors are ASVAB testing this morning.

Happy Birthday Mr. Olsen!!!!!  Here’s hoping the Lady Blackhawks give you a birthday win at Mitchell Christian tonight.  JV plays at 6:30 followed by varsity.  The bus will leave SC at 5:25.

Ooops – I had the date wrong for the Garth Brooks ticket raffle being sponsored by the Winterguard.  You can still purchase raffle tickets (will end tomorrow at 3:00).  Please see a Winterguard member for yours!

HS/JH FB practice at Woony today.

Soccer at Woonsocket today.

Cheer practice at Woonsocket today.

Please give all returned Children’s Theatre forms to Mrs. Vermeulen.  In case one didn’t come home with your student

The picture retake date has been moved to September 28th.  Mrs. Danek has order forms if you need one.

Did you get a big Blackhawk Calendar yet?????  Have your child stop in the office or contact

Days off has earned us the ability to skip a "true" eligibility this week!  We will send out the missing assignment notifications at approximately 1:30 today.  We will also check any student who had a failing grade last week to see if they have earned the right to be removed from the list this week.  We will return to our normal eligibility next week!

From the number of missing assignment reports given to the students this morning – it appears that tutoring should be full tonight!    Have you checked your portal lately?  If you have problems, please contact Mary at

The brackets for the CBH Volleyball tournament Saturday in Plankinton have been uploaded to our Google Drive.  We play the 3rd game with Highmore/Harold.  The tourney starts at 2:00.  Games can be watched at

From Coach Kolousek……..Saturday, September 9th is the youth football jamboree.  Any JH and HS players that are available, we could use your help in doing chains for these games.  Any players interested in doing chains for the youth jamboree, please let me know.  Any coaches or adults that would be interested in helping officiate or do chains at the youth jamboree on September 9th please let me know.  You do not have to commit to whole day.  Just let me know what time you would be able to volunteer on Saturday.

Snack Pack Program - Letcher Community Church is one of the churches in the county doing this program. Since people often ask what we need we thought we would put out a notice here and in the church news letter. Our main needs are: cans of Spaghetti O's, lasagna and soups.  Boxes of instant oatmeal, fruit cups or applesauce, pudding snacks, Little Debbie cakes or other individually wrapped snacks like PB crackers, cheese crackers, Popcorn and drink boxes like HI C fruit drinks, Peanut butter small jars and Ritz type crackers. Your donations help us pack meals for an estimated 20 children that need meals for weekends when patents aren't around. Donations can go to the Letcher Church or contact Tambi Wormstadt.

Looking for some extra cash?  The Daily Republic has routes open in Letcher and Artesian.  No Sundays and no collecting plus a free subscription along with pay!  Call Lakin at 1-800-520-5514 for more information.
