Triple 'A" Award recipients are selected by a multi-level process involving the League's member schools and administrative regions. League officials will announce the four award recipients (a girl and a boy from both a Class 'W' and Class '3_A" school) at an on-court rec- ognition ceremony held Saturday, March 26, 2011. Each award recip- ient will receive a four-year $1,000 scholarship. Both students will participate in the District Banquet held at Paynesville Jan. 12, 2011. Schools in our district are: EV/W, Litch- field, Dassel, B/B/E, A/C/GC, and Small town helps in a big way The coming of the holiday train marked the end of a successful community-wide National Honor Society (NHS) food drive. For the past week and a half, the Kim- ball Area National Honor Society has been running a food drive at the elementary school, the high school, and around the commu- nity. This year they collected a total of more than 5,000 pounds of food and a little more than $2,000. To help encourage students to donate more, they had a competi- tion in each school. In the elemen- tary school, the classrooms went head to head to win dilly bars for their classroom on the day before Christmas Break. Mrs. Palm's classroom took home the prize. In the high school, each grade com- peted against each other to win a half a day off of school to go tubing at Powder Ridge. The eighth grade triumphed over their fierce com- petitors, the seniors, to win the bragging rights. Although the real winner is the Kimball Area Food Shelf. It's so fantastic to see a small community, like Kimball, bring in this amount of food and money in a food drive. Over the past three years, the Kimball NHS has raised 14,000 pounds of food and $4,000! What an awesome way to help out people in need at this time of year! Chelsey Maus, PR Manager Cubs Club Before and After School-Age Program By Megan Kuechle With last week's fresh coat of snow, it truly feels like a "winter wonderland" here at Cubs Club. The children can hardly contain their excitement with the holidays right around the corner. We have been keeping very busy by deco- rating the room and doing fun hol- iday activities. For those of you that were able to join us, you know that our Thanksgiving Party was a great success. We made yummy tur- key-track treats, along with play- ing good ole' turkey bingo. We also played a relay race that involved all the children waddling like a turkey. With Thanksgiving behind us, we have turfied our attention to preparing for the upcoming win- ter season. We've been occupied with making art projects and doing holiday-inspired activities. Some favorites have been discov- ering with some paint that we can make Rudolph and Santa Clause out of our hands, decorating our ow n stockings to hang by the win- dow with care, and searching for four hidden stockings through- out the room. To build on our team work, we played "Santa's Helpers." This relay involved two groups of children competing to wrap all their presents before the other team. Both teams got a choco- Beautifully furnished guest suite with private bath in our assisted living apartments or memory care cottages. Respite care used for.

We also practiced our lis- tening skills by drawing a picture of a snowman with our eyes closed and only listening to directions of how to draw it. It was interesting to see all the creative snowmen that were drawn by the children. We also helped Frosty the Snowman put his carrot nose back where it belonged by pinning it to where we each thought it should go while blindfolded, none-the-less. One of the most intriguing and excit- ing games this month was Holiday Jeopardy. The children got to test their knowledge on the different reindeer, decorations, traditions, holiday movies, and the 12 days of Christmas. Cubs Club is celebrating the Holidays by having a party Wednesday, Dec. 22, after school until 4:30. Some of the activities the children will be engaged in are making gifts for our families, play- ing "pass the ornament" where the children have to pass the tis- sue paper ornament between each other only using straws, and the Candy Cane Pass which is a relay race to be the first team to pass the candy canes between their fingers without dropping. Cubs Club wishes you and your family a safe and happy Holidays.
