The Magic the Gathering Club will be meeting at its normal time this Wednesday.  Mr. Crown will also be explaining the end of the year tournament and rules.  Please attend if you can, but if not, please see Mr. Crown for information of the tournament.

For the first time ever, Highland Middle School will allow cheating at school.  If you would like to “cheat” and make the game more difficult for the opposing team during this month’s grade-wide Charity kickball game you can donate money to the Sports Shed in exchange for “creative disadvantages” that the opposing time must do.  For example if the 7th Gold team can raise $50, players on the 7 Maroon team will have to dance around the base path vs running during certain innings. So, bring some cash and visit the informational table in the cafeteria during your lunch period. The celebrity kickball game is April 28th.
