Calling All Artistic Students! Character Strength Opportunity- Great Way to Get Involved and Earn Points!
The first 3 students to contact Mrs. Rylands will be designated to participate.

The Research Club is hosting a project event entitled titled "Character Strengths". The goal of this project is to build the periodic table of character strengths on the bulletin board across from the enclosed cafeteria. We want the support and creativity of the Battlefield students that embody these characteristics everyday. The Periodic table of character strengths was designed by a foundation called "Let it Ripple" and this foundation focuses on engaging people in conversations and actions around complicated subjects that are shaping our lives.This project will strive to promote change and allow the Battlefield students to reflect and acknowledge their weakness, strengths and appreciate others. For more information about Let it Ripple foundation please visit www.Letitripple.org .
The event (the construction of the board) will be held on Dec.1st and Dec.3rd. At 2:30-4 in the cafeteria.Art supplies will be provided and snacks will be available for participants they also will be given a certificate of completion to document their volunteer hours.

Because the November meeting date falls on Veteran's Day this year, we are notable to hold the meeting. Therefore, please attend the NEHS yearbook photo in the Auditorium at 2:00 on Thursday, November 12. This will count as the November meeting and this will also be the last day we will accept signed expectations and the annual due of $10. There will be a sign-in.

After the photo, please plan to stick around for further announcements from Lauren A. and Lauren R. regarding a Holiday Book Drive for the Head Start kids and other service opportunities.
