Battle of the Books Begins
This week we will begin our Battle of the Books lunch meetings. Please check your email for a message from Mrs. Huff about the days your grade level will meet. If you have any questions or do not receive an email, please stop in the library.

All Phoenix students are invited to attend and get more information and/or sign up for the club. If someone is interested, but cannot make the meeting(s), contact Mr. Thom Aiello, the advisor, at
There is already a short list of story ideas, but we really would like your ideas as well!
Email Mr. Aiello if you have any questions in advance, or if you can confirm if you will be able to attend or not.

Snow Rules/Expectations:
At PX we do not permit throwing of snow and snowball fights are prohibited. This applies before, after school and during recess. Supervisors are asked to inform students about these rules.
Snow is one of the true joys about WI winter. During lunch we do permit students to play in the snow, as long as they are not throwing it. However, they are to brush off any snow prior to re-entry. If they get wet due to playing in the snow, we do not call home. If they wish to stay dry they are to remain on the black top.
We do stay outside before school and at lunch recess as long as the “feel like” temperature is at zero or above with the wind chill. If it is too icy outside or below zero we will follow rain day protocols.

Lost & Found
The Lost & Found has been spread out on the tables that are up against the wall in the cafeteria. Please go through and see if anything there is yours, if so take it with you. At the end of the month all items will be donated to charity. Parents! You are more than welcome to come and check out the Lost & Found Table before we donate everything if your child is missing something! It’s amazing how many lost & found items go unclaimed here at Phoenix Middle School!
