Daily Announcements:

Voice of Democracy. It's that time of year again - time to win free money!  All you have to do is enter the annual Voice of Democracy audio-essay contest. The national first place winner receives a $30,000 scholarship paid directly to the recipient’s American university, college or vocational/technical school. Other national scholarships range from $1,000-$16,000, and the first place winner from each VFW Department (state) wins a minimum scholarship of $1,000.  This year's theme is "America: Where Do We Go From Here?"   If you are interested, see Mrs. Hargus in room 403 for more information. 

Unified Sports. Anyone interested in Unified Sports that has not yet reached out to me please do so ASAP.  We start practice this week and all paperwork must be submitted online via Family ID.  Please stop by the gym or send an email to klyon@ledyard.net if you are interested in joining Unified Sports. If you have already received the email invitation and link please get your paperwork submitted ASAP.

National Art Honor Society. All creative art students who are interested in applying for Ledyard's National Art Honors Society chapter should see Ms. Flanagan or Mrs. Marciano for an application. NAHS is a community service based chapter that is art-emphasized and it's a great way for artists to meet each other while helping our local communities. Applications are due to Ms. Flanagan no later than September 28th at 2:20pm.

A table of bottled water and packaged snacks will be provided for $1.00 per item during the event. See Mrs.Yano in room 116 if you have any questions.
