HIP WEEK DID YOU KNOW CHALLENGE:
Each day starting today 11/2-11/17, a new “FACT” will be shared on the morning announcements AND will be posted throughout the hallway. Starting Monday November 13th, a question will be asked during the morning announcements. They will be questions about the information that has been shared. If anyone in 1st period knows the answer to the question, they should write the answer on the HIP WEEK DID YOU KNOW CHALLENGE BALLOTS and send someone to room 72 to submit their answer. If the answer is correct, that ballot will be submitted into a drawing that will happen at the end of the week. The prize will be something AWESOME sponsored from Seneca Youth Council for the WHOLE FIRST PERIOD J (Before I share what that prize is, I’m getting final approval J). Please encourage your 1st period to participate! Hopefully it will be a fun challenge for everyone, but the main idea is to educate and get students talking about the facts.
The BALLOTS will be placed in your mailboxes by Friday November 10th.

8th grade students in Iroquois Studies class collaborate with Enrichment students to learn how to make traditional Iroquois white corn soup, and hypothesize why the white corn turns a bright, burnt orange color and then back to white again, during the process.
Traditional white corn soup, conventional fry bread and strawberry drink samples will be available to those attending the 2nd Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Monday, November 20, 2017!
