Soup-er Bowl winners
Each year the week before the famous Super Bowl, the MS Student Council host the “Soup”er Bowl for grades fifth through eighth. The teams compete by bringing in cans of soup that count as one point each, with the cans going to the high school, NHS Operation Backpack Campaign. This year in the five days, the students brought in 1254 cans, the most ever. The top four winners in the fifth and sixth grade and the top four winners in the seventh and eighth grade advisories get to go to the gym and compete in Soup-er Bowl Challenge, which consists of fun activities to pit one class against another. Those classes that didn’t make the cut still get to go to the gym and root for their favorite teams.
Topping the fifth and sixth grade classes were Mrs. Pratt’s class with 281 cans, followed by, Mrs. Braden’s class, 226 cans; Mrs. Rockwell’s class, 199 cans, and Mrs. Lorenson, 151 cans. Making the cut for seventh and eighth grade advisories were Mrs. Heras seventh grade advisory with 155 cans, followed by, Mr. Robinson’s, 102 cans, Mrs. Boedeker’s, 52 cans, and Mrs. Sadler’s, 48 cans.
Those needing homework help can make arrangements to stay in the BRAVES room from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. There is a teacher there to help students each evening. Help is also available before school from 7:45 to 8:10 a.m.
