4.    Book Fair begins Tuesday, October 7 in the Media Center. Be sure to visit between 8:00 and 2:00. Who is the better “Champion”? Girls? or Boys? Let’s find out. Bring your spare change to the Media Center and put it in the boy or girl container. Whatever amount we collect we can keep to buy books for the classrooms. Scholastic will match the amount in books for kids in need. Help us put books into the hands of those who do not have them.                                  Flyers for the Book Fair will be handed out today or Monday. Each flyer is numbered. During the fair a number will be announced. If you have that flyer and bring it to the Media Center, you will be able to pick out a free book from the book fair. So hang on to those flyers!

Two men were being tried for murder.  The jury found one man guilty and the other innocent.  The judge turned to the guilty man and said, “Even though your guilt has been established, the law compels me to set you free.”  How could such a bizarre judgment occur?

What two opposites can be spelled by rearranging the letters of UNGOODLY?
