PINK OUT:  Tuesday, January 5th will be the annual “PinkOut” basketball game against Hempstead. We will be selling Pink Out t-shirts in support of our very own Ram, Mike Wulfekuhle. Mike is a veteran social studies teacher and former coach at Dubuque Senior High School and has been battling lung cancer. He and his family will be recognized at the basketball game the night of January 5th.

Please join us in supporting Mike by purchasing a Pink Out t-shirt (order forms can be found on the Senior High website or in the Activities Office). All proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society and or former “Pink Out” honorees still battling cancer.

Order forms and payments can be turned into the Activities Office. Let’s get our RAM FAM together and support Mr. Wulfekuhle in his battle against cancer!

Orders and payments can also be dropped off to Dennis “Deno” Noel. Payment must accompany the order form.*

Attention Ram Fans!
Help us pack the pool for our dual meet against Cedar Rapids Washington this Thursday. Come see last year’s two MVC divisional champs go toe to toe.

Come show your support for Senior athletics and watch two of the top swim teams in the state this Thursday at 6PM at Hempstead Pool!

BATTLE OF THE BOOKS:  Are you more of a reader than a fighter? Then you should consider Battle of the Books! This book-based competition will be similar to joining a competitive book club! It involves teams of up to 6 members reading selected books and then battling it out to show who knows them best!

Mrs. Bontemps and Mrs. Fischer will hold an informational meeting about Battle of the Books on Wednesday, at 7:15 am in the Library. Come hear what it's all about and share your ideas; if you are unable to attend, please stop and see Mrs. Bontemps in the library or Mrs. Fischer in B149.
