Dog Wheelchairs are expensive, and many shelter animals do not have access to them. 6th Grade STEM wanted to correct this problem by designing and donating their own hand-made dog-wheelchairs - at a low cost! After reaching out to the Tails Humane Society of DeKalb, the 6th Grade STEM class was invited to donate their products and spend some time with the animals! They had an amazing time and their efforts will never be forgotten.

Nothing like a little last minute shopping! Students in Mrs. Tjelle’s math class created their own store selling a product of their choice. Students have been working on percentages and applied them to holiday sales in their stores.

Candy cane gram sales are underway. You may purchase candy cane grams at lunch for 25 cents/gram. All grams will be delivered during the lunch hours on Friday, December 20th. When making purchases, don't forget friends, teachers, and staff members...they will all love to receive a candy cane gram from you. To honor the idea of giving is more important than receiving, purchase a gram as a random act of kindness for someone outside your circle of friends this holiday season! Other than making someone's day, the coolest thing about our candy cane gram sales is that all profits raised will be used to purchase items from the giving trees for Somonauk families in need!

How many times have you asked ‘would you like to buy a Rosati’s gift card and support Somonauk Middle School?’ A 5th grade student stopped in the office yesterday and said he is up to 16 certificates sold and he still has 2 more days to go! Will he be a top 4 seller? Will YOU? How does free pizza for a YEAR sound? Keep on selling, SMS! Orders are due Friday morning!
