BOOK CLUB - We are reading MT Anderson’s Feed. Within the world of Feed, everyone is plugged in, that is, we get the latest news, shopping discounts, scores and updates, all the things we NEED to know, beamed directly into our heads. Yes that’s right, we are all plugged into the feed, thus everyone is properly INFORMED so we know how to behave and just what to buy. But, when a young teen challenges the feed and wants to unplug, the powers that be decide that is just too dangerous. Imagine the risk of a young teenager actually thinking for themselves! - MT Anderson sets up a disturbing dystopian world of tomorrow in his novel, Feed.

Book Club just started reading this novel. Mr. B has a handful of copies, otherwise check the library. This is a great young adult, dystopian novel of how wonderful, and possibly horrific the world of tomorrow can be. (3/10)

The freshman record now stands at 12-1 with 4 games left in the season.


The JV boys basketball team  gave Haslett their second loss of the season last night.  The JV Panthers played a great defensive game and led by more than double digits most of the second half.  The JV team raised their overall record to 13-3 on the season.


Attention those of you planning to play a spring sport:  Spring sports start March 13 and you must have a physical on file in order to try out.  So, get this taken care of prior to tryouts or your coach will not be happy and you won’t be able to participate!  (through March 8)
