HIGH SCHOOL DANCE
The high school holiday dance is Friday night, 7:30 to 10:00 p.m. in Hayden Hall. The permission form is available on our Forms page and must be returned by Friday morning. This is a free dance for Stanbridge high school students and it will have a holiday theme. The dance will include a professional DJ with great music, free food and drinks and lots of seasonal decorations. Students are allowed to invite two friends from outside of Stanbridge (guest information must be included on the permission form). This dance is exclusively for high school students; students cannot invite junior high students to the dance. A group of teachers and parents will be on hand as chaperones.
GIVING TREE GIFTS DUE; VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED FOR SATURDAY
All gifts for this year's Family Giving Tree are due under the tree by end-of-school on Friday and will be brought to the Family Giving Tree warehouse on Saturday, December 10th by a small group of Junior High and High School volunteers. On that same day the students will volunteer their time for three hours from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in support of this wonderful organization’s efforts. More information on both the Family Giving Tree program and an online volunteer sign-up form can be found in this week's SPA Spot.
BULLDOGS BACK ON THE COURT

On Saturday morning, Dec. 10th, the Bulldogs will take on STAR Academy with tip time at 9:00 a.m. at First String Athletics.

DON'T FORGET THAT HOLIDAY COOKIES FOR STAFF ARE DUE NEXT WEEK
We're still looking for help in baking cookies for the annual staff cookie boxes. There are two ways you can help: On Wednesday, Dec. 14th, drop off four-dozen homemade or bakery-bought cookies (no pre-packaged, please) by 3:00 p.m. to the front office. Make sure that they're not too fragile to be stacked in a box. Better yet... Join some fellow parent bakers for a festive evening of food, drinks, and cookie box assembly the night of December 14th, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Online RSVPs and details on the cookie party available in this week's SPA Spot.
SPEAKING OF COOKIES...
The weekly Friday bake sale is tomorrow. Items cost $1 each and proceeds go to the student activities fund. As always, we invite you to visit our Video Gallery for a clip of James Warren singing "The Bake Sale Song."
