Penny Wars starts next week for EPSO week!!!! 7th and 8th grades are
competing against each other! Start
digging under couch cushions, bottom of backpacks and any other area change
gets lost in. Here is how it works: Only pennies are positive points for your
grade. All silver coins and bills are
negative points. For example: 50 pennies is +50 points and a $5 dollar bill
is a negative 500 points for your grade.
So, put your pennies in your own grade’s water jug and silver and bills
in the other grade’s water jug. Water
jugs will be in the gym before school and outside the cafeteria during school
Washington D.C. packets are
available in the front office for any 8th grader who is interested
On November 9th
Dickson Middle School will be honoring our Veterans. Each year we ask our 8th grade students
to invite family members who served or are serving in the U.S. Military. Eighth grade students if you have a family
member you would like to honor at this event please pick up an information
letter in the front office.
