It’s a “C-D” Day!

Welcome to the following guest staff today: Zak Likely for Kim Mason, Andrew Murchison for Ralph Jamieson, and Katherine MacKenzie for Karen Malone.

Happy Birthday to Nicole Richards.

Highlights for Today:

  • Today’s Library Trivia Question: The oldest library in the Americas is in which country? A. United States, B. Canada, or C. Mexico. Please write your answer on the paper provided outside the library and place the answer in the library book return box. Ballots will be available starting at break and at lunch time…no ballots during class time.  Winner will be announced at the end of each day. The winner will be determined from a random draw of all correct answers.
  • Today’s Culinary meal is being served at 11:50am in Room 136. Those who pre-paid get served first.
  • Readers’ Circle meets today in the Library Conference room at 12:05pm. Feel free to bring a snack!
  • Debate Club: (change of plans) There will be no Debate meeting today after school.
  • Contest: Name the school store! Stop by to put your suggestion into the Ballot Box. You could win a Subway Card. There are only 25 CSLC T-Shirts left and they are selling 2 for $2.
  • Students who wish to make a request for the Friday song must submit a copy of the lyrics with your name on top to Ms. Dowd or Brent Deagle.
  • Student Fees are now payable at the main office. Remember that the Christmas Dance is coming up soon and your Student Fees must be paid in order to purchase a dance ticket.

Student Council:

  • It is with great sadness that we have to announce that all multi-genre projects will be cancelled due to the murder of Mr. Nick last night at the haunted halls of MRHS. No one else in their right mind would want to check THAT assignment. In case you haven’t figured it out, Ms. McLane is to thank, I mean blame, for the execution. I guess Mr. Nick scared her one, too many times!
  • We would like to extend a thank you to Jacob Lava and his crew who worked on this project and collected a box of canned goods and close to $170 for the food bank. Thank you Jacob for coming up with such an adventure.
  • The best group through was Carley MacLean, Sarah Furness, and Molly Stewart who were the easiest to scare. Who knew someone could be scared of air! LOL
  • BYOB! Brin your own banana on November 7. Make a sundae for $3 in the Cafeteria.
  • Bake Sale on November 15 in the Cafeteria!

Athletic Department:

  • After the Montague Vikings Men’s Volleyball team finished their first set against Bluefield, they considered drafting seven-year-old Braeden to their team for the remainder of the match. Fortunately, that proved unnecessary as the Vikings regained their competitive edge for the following two sets. Once again, Tynan Murphy dazzled his millions – and millions – of fans with his hard and accurate hits which he delivered with relish to Bluefield opposition. Pierce Conohan brought his consistent serves to the table once again. And Jake Banks used his unorthodox style of serving, bumping and digging to keep his team in the game. The last two sets allowed rookie players David Thompson, Mark Morrison and Patrick Walsh to hit the court and “strut their groove thangs”. David casually tipped the ball upon the unsuspecting Bluefield defense to score a point; Mark successfully slammed a “flying over-hand smasher serve” (he’s still working on the name) into the Bluefield ranks; and Patrick directed traffic with his usual charm. Good luck on Monday, guys!
  • Women’s Soccer team lost a heartbreaking game to Colonel Gray 4-3. The girls will play the Bronze Medal game on Saturday at 10:00am at Terry Fox Complex in Cornwall. Wear your red and black and go cheer them on!
  • Congratulations to the Field Hockey Team on a well-played championship game and a silver medal finish!
  • Today in Intramural Dodgeball Action: the Wrecking Balls play the Balls of Fury.
  • The Fitness Center will be closed after school today.
  • Try-outs for the Men’s Basketball team will begin this weekend, Saturday, from 12:00 to 2:30pm. Any interested student athletes are encouraged to attend. If you are NOT able to attend, be certain that you sign up for next week’s sessions on the sheet posted across from the Gym Office.  The next session will be on Monday with the time to be announced.
  • Students interested in participating in a U16 badminton tournament on November 24 should see the flyer on the bulletin board in the PE area or Ms. Dowd for more information.
  • The Power Lifting Team trains on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3:15pm in the Fitness Centre.

Library Highlights:
