March Madness!!! If you didn't get my e-mail, after break we will be starting our advisory March Madness Bracket competition! March Madness is a college basketball tournament conducted every year, and we are going to have a competition to see if your advisory can guess who is going to win! Because the tournament starts in the middle of break, we are going to fill out brackets after the round of 16. Brackets will be filled out on paper during advisory on March 26th (the Wednesday we come back from break), but your advisory's bracket will only be considered in the competition if ad an advisory you collect $10 and put it in the envelopes that will be in your lounge before the Tuesday after break. All money will be donated to Special Olympics, so we hope you fill out a bracket! The competition will end at the end of March, and you can get the chance to win a basketball hoop for the back of your advisory door!!
