Our new math problem of the week is:

The Disappearing Dollar

Three friends have a meal in a restaurant and they are charged $25.  They each chip in with a $10 bill and hand it to the waiter.  The waiter, though, isn't very good at math (like dividing the $5 change by 3), so he keeps $2 as a tip and hands each friend $1. 

Cells Anyone?

Armed with boxes of sidewalk chalk Mr. Hallam's Biology classes went outside of the school to draw cell structures. This is something that his classes do every year, and it gives his students a large canvas to show off what they have learned.

 Parent Teacher Conferences Tomorrow

Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held tomorrow - Thursday, September 25th from 3:00 – 8:00p.m. - This is a great time to visit with teachers and discuss how your student(s) is (are) doing in class.  Teachers will be in the lunch room, but before you head in there, please stop at the counseling table to pick up a copy of your student's midterm grade report.  The counseling table will be set up at the main entrance of the school, outside of the main office.

Running For the Pack—Lobo Cross Country

by Rillene R. E. Nielsen with pictures by Esther Zacharias

On September 12, 2014, the Lobo X-County team hopped on a bus and took a trip across the valley race against Diamond Fork, Mt. Nebo, and Mapleton Junior Highs.  A big thank you goes out to Mapleton for hosing this event.

This is a rebuilding year for both the Lobe girls’ and boys’ teams.  Many of our fastest 9th grade runners are racing for Spanish Fork High.  While this might be seen as handicap in leadership, it brings with it the opportunity for more 7th and 8th graders to participate.

A big cheer goes out to Wyatt Evan.  He was the 4th boy to cross the finish line.

Diggin' Dinosaurs Answer:

Because the second part of the question asked you to tell when they should go, it allows you to go 8 times in the same month.  Therefore, the best plan is B at $15.00.
