ENERGY DRINKS

Energy drinks, like Red Bull, Amped, Monster and RockStar, can make a can of Mountain Dew
look like child’s play. Energy drinks provide more than just a sugar rush. These drinks may
contain high-powered ingredients like guarana, taurine, ginseng, mega-doses of vitamins and
caffeine. The caffeine content of an energy drink can be up to four times that in a soda.
Consuming these drinks can result in a vicious cycle of ups and downs. For some, it can lead to
an addiction to caffeine and stimulants.

Each person’s response to caffeine and stimulants vary. These drinks should be treated very
carefully because of how powerful they are. Energy drinks stimulant properties can increase
heart rate, dehydrate the body, disrupt sleep patterns and worsen hyperactivity and
attention deficit disorder. Symptoms of high caffeine intake are irregular behaviors,
headaches, restlessness, and sleeplessness and chest pains. Athletes should not consider
these energy drinks as performance enhancing drinks or fluid replacement options.

Young people don’t need to consume products that contain large amounts of sugar, caffeine or
stimulants. It’s unhealthy.

Boxtops for Education
The middle school student council (BRMS and CKCS combined), has enrolled in the Boxtops for Education program
this year. This is a simple fundraiser in which families clip "Boxtops for Education" coupons off of product packages
and send them to school to be counted. The coupons are then sent in to the Boxtops program, redeemable for cash.
 A typical coupon is worth ten cents. We are in the middle of our first Boxtops Challenge for this school year,
tracking submittals by grade level. The three grade levels and staff are competing for the first ever Boxtops
Champion title. At this point, nearly 5,000 coupons have been sent in and counted. That is nearly $500 worth! The
student council will determine how to spend this money.

Our next challenge will be in a few months. Feel free to send the boxtops in at any point and we will store them here.
Make sure that the package is labeled with your student's grade level so that we can give credit to the right team.

If you're interested in learning more about this program, you may visit www.boxtops4education.com for details.
 That's a great place to see lists of products bearing the coupon and additional ways you can add to our school's
fundraiser.

Thank you!


IMMUNIZATION
In past years, thousands of Wisconsin children caught diseases such as measles, whooping cough, polio and
rubella, and many were left with severe disabilities. The WI Student Immunization Law was passed in order to
keep these and other vaccine-preventable diseases from returning and harming the health of our children.

This 2008-2009 school year, students entering grades 6, 9 and 12 are required to have a dose of adolescent
Tdap. An exception is made for students who already received a tetanus containing vaccine within 5 years of
entering the grade where Tdap is required. Also starting this school year a second dose of the varicella vaccine
is required for students entering grades K, 6 and 12. Students with a history of chicken pox disease are exempt
from the varicella vaccine requirement.

If your child’s immunizations are not up to date you will be receiving a notification letter by mail. Please contact
your child’s physician or see information below regarding Dane County Public Health Immunization Clinic.

Contact Ann Juzwik RN, 845-4115, with questions or concerns.

74 DISCOVERY
In 74 Discovery, students are “discovering” themselves, their environment, and their world. In SCIENCE,
we will be investigating the tiniest forms of life, cells. There are many lab activities with this unit and also a
model cell project. Following cells, we will begin our studies in genetics. In LANGUAGE ARTS, students
will finish the short story unit and will have a test. We will begin reading the novel entitled: The Giver. The
next book report is from the historical fiction genre due on November 11th. In MATH, we began our second
unit, Stretching and Shrinking. In this unit we are focusing on geometry skills and concepts. Please
encourage your child to be working on the rubric work and meeting the deadlines. There will be a unit test
in December. In SOCIAL STUDIES, classes were focused on geography foundations. The “Five Themes
of Geography” were reviewed and will continue to serve as a framework for our study of the areas of the
Eastern Hemisphere. After a short unit on the presidential election, students will begin to study East Asia
during November and December. Also, if you are not receiving the house mass email, please contact Heidi

Update from House 72/3 EG-MW
Following units in creativity and mapping, students are now reading short stories in language arts. The
students have been reading numerous short stories, creating plot diagrams and will eventually write a story
of their own.

Science finds the kids studying the characteristics of life. Insects have been collected and cells are being
studied. Thanks to parents for lab assistance.

In November, students will tackle the Famous Scientist research project. This is a science/language
arts/social studies integrated unit. Be sure to ask your child which famous scientist he/she is studying.

The students have completed a beginning algebra unit entitled Variables and Patterns. From here, they move

Middle School Music Concert Etiquette, Concert Apparel, and Fall Concert Schedule
Concerts represent the final product of months of hard work in the classroom. Parents are asked to show support for these
efforts by attending as many concerts as possible.

If a student cannot attend a concert, a parent MUST write a note in advance excusing them from the event. In the case of
family emergencies, as soon as possible following the performance. Music students and families are given concert dates
months in advance, so conflicts with previous commitments rarely occur.

Attendance and participation at concerts are graded activities in Band, Choir and Orchestra. Students are expected to stay at the
concert until it is finished, as community service clean-up is always needed following a performance. Also, important
evaluation material is expected to be learned from watching and listening to other groups perform.

Concert Etiquette
It is each student's individual responsibility to be a polite listener. It is also the responsibility of teachers and parents to model
these behaviors. Our examples as adults are the best lessons that a young musician could observe.

Audience member expectations:
1. Turn off all pagers, cell phones, watches, etc.
2. Arrive early to find a seat. If you arrive late, wait until the music has stopped to find the nearest available seat.
3. Remain silent during the performance. Talking during a music performance in a concert hall is never appropriate.
4. Young children need to be instructed to maintain silence and stay in their seats during the performance. If a child
   begins to cry or fuss, they should be immediately taken out of the concert hall, comforted, and settled down
   before returning.
5. Remain seated until the end of the concert. If you must leave, please wait until an appropriate time in between
   pieces or performing groups.
6. Please hold applause until the very end of a piece. It is appropriate to clap after a piece is completed, but not
   between movements of a large work or multi-movement piece. You can tell by the position of the conductor’s
   hand when a piece is truly completed.
7. Whistling and yelling are not appropriate when applauding. Vigorous, lengthy, or standing applause signals to
   the performer particular pleasure with a performance.
8. Food and drink are never allowed in an auditorium or concert hall.

Concert Dress
Students performing in concerts should be neat and clean. Avoid denim, t-shirts and sweatshirts of any kind. Collared shirts
that are tucked in are most appropriate for the boys, and neck ties are also often required at particular performances. For the
girls, particular attention should be made to the skirt and dress length, being to the knee or longer. Musicians standing on risers
or sitting in the front rows of an ensemble need not be distracting to the audience. Concert participation is our foremost
concern, but we also expect performances to be professional and distinguished activities. This policy is printed in every
student’s planner.

Fall Concert Schedule
Musicians are expected to be in their warm-up area for each of the concerts at least 30 minutes before the start of the show.
Each Concert listed below begins at 7:00p.m., warm-ups begin at 6:30p.m.

     If you are interested in donating gifts to local children you may come in to
   school to pick a student from the bulletin board (starting in November) or you
  may choose to donate items in a more general way. Gifts should be unwrapped
