Hello, everyone in Urchinville! I trust everyone had a great week last

week. Topping off our news is the sports action this week. The high

school Lady Urchins and Urchins will play their first division

basketball game of the year at home this Tuesday, December 7, against

the Walnut Wildcats. Action starts at 5:00 p.m. with the junior varsity

boys playing prior to the varsity girls' game at 6, with the varsity

boys' game following. Thursday, December 9, the East Union varsity

bowling team will compete with West Union at Rebel Lanes. The jr. high

Lady Urchins and Urchins will face off against West Union Thursday,

December 9. The first game is at 5:30 p.m.. Show your Urchin pride and

support your athletics teams this week! The Jr. Beta club is selling

long- sleeved East Union shirts. Orders are due by Friday, December 10.

See Mrs. Garrett for more information or an order form. There has been a

schedule change regarding the annual school-wide Reading Fair. The

Reading Fair has been rescheduled for Friday, January 14, in the

Henderson Building. Competition begins at 8:30 a.m.. Don't forget the

Relay For Life project going on all year. Students, I encourage you to

purchase a footprint for one dollar. Support this worthy cause and

purchase one today! I would like to close this week's news with one of

my favorite Bible verses: “The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom

shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be

afraid?”-Psalm 27:1. This verse has brought me so much comfort in my own

times of tribulation. Remember this week that no matter what problems

you may be facing this week, God is there with open arms. Lean on Him

for strength and support. Have a great week, Urchins!
