Big kudos to Emma and her games committee for having everything planned and prepared to go on Friday! Thank you for your hard work!

There will be a Student Council meeting during lunch on Friday in Mrs. Brockman's room. All members must attend as we have a lot of topics to discuss and plan. 

Today we recognize Indigenous Peoples' Day which honors the past, present, and futures of Native peoples throughout the US. The holiday recognizes the legacy and impact of colonialism on Native communities, and it also celebrates the cultures, contributions, and resilience of contemporary Native peoples.

The Biden Administration issued a proclamation declaring the second Monday of October Indigenous Peoples Day for the second year in 2022. The commemoration of Native American history and culture is now federally recognized alongside Columbus Day, which has been historically observed on the same day. 

  ***A few Wisconsin American Indian Tribe facts:
        There are 11 Federally-recognized tribes in Wisconsin
***Also there are three Cities named Stockbridge: Stockbridge Massachusetts,
Stockbridge New York and Stockbridge Wisconsin. All three were  initially Mohican Indian villages.

***There will be musical practice Monday, Wednesday 

    and Friday this week during 9th hour.

***Here are a few words of wisdom:

How many times have you sat in the bleachers and booed a football player
who fumbled the ball? Or maybe you were a good sport and kept your 
mouth shut but said to yourself, "What an idiot!"
Theodore Roosevelt, our 26th president, was known as a person of action.
He said:
                It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out
            how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds
            could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man
            who is actually in the arena.
Today, remember this: If you are active and doing your best- -whether it's
with your studies or sports or other activities-you deserve a great deal of
credit for fully participating in the game of life. When you stumble, don't let
sideline critics discourage your efforts. Instead, give yourself a pat on the 
back for being in the game and not on the sidelines.

***With something to think about, Make it a great day . . or not. The choice is yours.
