The Oreo Challenge is back! When asked which of the seven dwarfs you resemble, this person felt drawn to Happy.  Continuing in the same bright, shiny, happy way this person is, they felt that they would be sorted into Hufflepuff for their Hogwarts house.  They prefer Golden Oreos and their favorite Disney movie is Beauty and the Beast. Growing up they thought they were going to be a downhill skier in the Olympics and the advice they would like to give their younger self is to go to every dance, sporting event etc…have fun and make lots of memories.  Their favorite quote is “Life is not measured by how many breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away” Get your answers in by 8 am. IF a class has a sub, one person can email Mrs. Peres with the class' guess.

Last week's Oreo Challenge was Mr. Leighty. Mr.'s Thompson's class is on a roll getting both teacher's correct so far. Now on to today's person. When asked who this person’s favorite Disney character is they responded Roz “I’m watching you…Always watching!”. In their heart of hearts, this individual believes that Hufflepuff is the house they truly belong in.  Their preferred Oreo is the golden variety.  Remember the Titans is their favorite Disney movie while they feel Dopey is the dwarf that most represents them. When they were young they wanted to be a physical therapist and the advice they would like to give their younger self is don’t be afraid.  Their favorite quote is from Margret Mead “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

This individual cannot say which Disney character is their favorite, but does admit that they most resemble Sleepy of all of the seven dwarfs.  If they were to be sorted by the Sorting Hat at Hogwarts, they feel that they would be put in Ravenclaw.  While they may not have a favorite Disney character, their favorite Disney movie is Mulan.

Welcome back for the final push to the end of the year.

Here is today's mystery teacher.

This individual says the Lady and the Tramp is their favorite Disney movie and the Disney character they most want to be is Remy because they love to cook.  Ravenclaw is their preferred Hogwarts house and Dopey is the dwarf they most resemble.  They enjoy Golden Oreos above all others and although they don’t eat them often, they would not want to share their doughnuts with ANYONE!! This person wanted to be a Vet when they were young and would encourage their younger self to go away for college. Their favorite quote is short and simple: Life isn’t fair; get used to it

Congratulations to the March Super Senators!

 Wow, what a wonderful weekend we had at the Key Club State Convention!  It was bittersweet as we said farewell to our current State Executive Board Governor Paige Hein, and our current State Webmaster Samantha Bunag.  They dedicated so much of their lives the past 12 months into making our Indiana District shine, and be the envy of districts around the world!  We also watched as Jason Bunag, Gage Gonzalez and Madalyn Richardson retired from their state positions as Lieutenant Governors.  Washington Township is gaining such an awe-inspiring reputation thanks to the commitment for excellence from all these leaders!

But wait, there's more!  It's not over yet as we won several spots on this new year's Executive Board!  Heartfelt congratulations to Jason Bunag who was elected after a nail-biting three days into the position as Governor of the Indiana District!  And to Gage Gonzalez who is our new Bulletin Editor! 

But wait, there's even more!  Each district gets to nominate two candidates to run for the International Key Club position of Trustee and two WTS students won this election!  Congratulations to Nicole Bunag and Paige Hein!  Your speeches were inspiring, your dedication is astounding, and we are so very, very proud of you!  

There are plenty of opportunities coming up to hold offices next year but you have to start now!  If you like meeting new people, facing new challenges, opening doors to your future, and having your voice heard, please consider running for an office!  Speak with any officer or Mrs. Rea for more information!  We promise you, it is well worth it!!

The Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast will be held on Saturday, March 9th at the Expo Center. If anyone would like to purchase tickets, Mrs. Rea has them available for only $8 apiece.  That's a $2 discount compared to what you will pay at the door.

January 30

We are in desperate need of donors for the blood drive next Wednesday.  Only 50 people out of 118 openings have signed up. 

Blood drives have been canceled in nearly every state where the Red Cross collects blood. As a result, nearly 15,000 blood and platelet donations have gone uncollected this month alone. The nation is currently facing the lowest number of people giving blood in 20 years. When fewer people donate blood, any disruption to blood donations – like recent weather systems – can have a huge effect on the availability of blood products and dramatic consequences for those in need of emergency blood transfusion. Generous blood donors are vital to ensuring those in need of transfusions have access to lifesaving care.

All donors receive a $20 Amazon gift card, plus your contribution helps us get three scholarships for our students.  The more donors we have, the larger the scholarships are.  Plus, students who donate at least 3 times before they graduate get a Red Cross Cord to wear with their cap and gown to distinguish their generous unselfish hearts.   PLEASE be a hero and sign up at Red Cross.org, or email Mrs. Rea and she will send you the link!
