FROM THE LIBRARIAN: Attention all readers of science fiction and fantasy novels.  I have a milk crate of sci-fi and fantasy novels on my desk that are free for the taking.  A generous donor wanted you to have first dibs on his collection.  There are a variety of authors and all are quick reads.  If you liked Lord of the Rings, these would be right up your alley.  No fair taking library books!  Library books have spine labels and CCC bar codes.  These do not.  So look twice before you grab them off my desk.  If they are from the milk crate and they have no spine label, and they have no CCC bar code then the book is yours.  Don't forget you can also check out a book by filling out the form in the basket.  I have been madly cataloguing the these past few days mostly in the graphic novel section.  I have quite a few new volumes of Bleach, so please check it out.

  • As part of our Spirit Week festivities, we will have a Chubby Cheeks competition right now.  Here is how the contest works:
  • Each homeroom must select ONE student to compete in the competition.  It may not be the same student from yesterday’s push up contest.Once you have heard the cue, students will have 60 seconds to see how many marshmallows they can stuff into their mouths while still breathing.At the end of 60 seconds, the participating student must take a picture that has their name, class year, and the number of marshmallows they have in their mouths.  If you do not have a picture, you cannot qualify for the prize.
  • We will take ONE student from each grade level and reward them with a gift card to McDonald’s.  We will give you a few seconds to get yourselves ready (pause).
  • Once you hear the cue, students can start stuffing those marshmallows.  We are trusting you to be HONEST with your counts.  Are you ready?  On your mark.  Get set.  Go!  (count 60 seconds)  Please send your final counts and pictures to Mr. Eatman with your student (or staff member) via email.

FROM THE DEANS: It is going to be a crazy weather week outside Central Catholic.  The temperatures will be in 30s today, but will drop overnight and the rest of the week. With that said, please make sure you are dressed appropriately with a school-approved sweater or vest as well as a long-sleeved button down shirt.  Reminder that hoodies, hats, scarves, gloves, ski-bands, or other non-uniform attire is prohibited.  There will be several dress code checks as well as hall sweeps.  Since you do not know when they are coming, you should make sure that you are in uniform at all times.  In addition, if you cause a disruption coming from the lunchroom, you will wait until you have calmed down.    Remember, the atrium closes at 4:00 PM and you need to have all of your belongings with you before cleaning crew begins.  You will not be permitted to retrieve those items because you went to Popeye’s, had to lift for sports, or simply wanted to hang out with friends.
