Stop up in the Main Office to pick up your T-shirts, Check out their awesome IM Senior Champ T-Shirts as well.

Also I wanted to thank everyone else who participated and supported their teams. A total of 16 teams participated, which made for a lot of fun and a lot of excitement.

The Next IM Event will be 6v6 Dodgeball.

Do you like to problem solve? Well then come check out the Mu Alpha Theta, a mathematics fraternity. We will be meeting this coming Tuesday, November 10th at 7:05 in Mrs. Jorgenson’s room, A321. Come join the fun!

Seniors: Josten’s will be returning to school on Wednesday, November 11th during the lunch hour to collect the cap and gown (you have already paid for these but still need to give us some information) and other items you would like order. If you were unable to attend the meeting, there are packets available in the Main Office.

Seniors! The Echo Yearbook Staff needs your senior pictures! The following guidelines must be met for the photo to be included.

Photographs must be in color and have been taken with a traditional camera. Pictures from a cellular phone become very pixelated and will not appear properly. It must be a “raw” photo. No Photoshop or other editing as photos that have undergone this process are a smaller file size and will not print properly. Photograph must be a head shot. Hands should be down and away from the face so as not to obscure the subject. Top/shirt must have straps.

If an acceptable photo has not been received by January 15, your student ID photo will be used.

Photos may be emailed to or Please see any Echo staff member or Mrs. Jackman in room E45 with questions.

Covers of Comfort is getting under way. Help us make blankets to keep people warm during their treatment and along the cancer journey. More information to come later this week!

Project Kids! 5th hour classes! Please join us in giving to the Dubuque Community during this holiday season. Sign-up sheets were placed in teacher mailboxes. Please turn them in by November 4th.

Student Council members will be visiting throughout the week during 5th hour study time on Monday, Thursday, or Friday to provide more information on both of these endeavors.

Seniors – Do you have a sibling who is a freshman? Freshmen, do you have a sibling who is a senior? If so, then come down to the yearbook room, E45, to have your picture taken. Plan what you would like to do before coming; wear similar clothes, pick out funny hats, or a striking pose.

Twins – the same goes for you! Come together and get your photo taken for the yearbook.

If you would like your photo to appear in the yearbook, you must have your picture taken by the Echo staff by November 20th.
