For the announcements during directed study:

Well done and thank you Cambridge-Isanti High School. For the
past four years, the Bluejacket varsity football team has taken a knee
when our opponents have experienced an injury during a game.
This is very classy and respectful behavior.

Last Friday at our football game with North Branch, a young man from North Branch was hurt and on the ground needing medical attention. OUr entire Bluejacket football team immediately took a knee out of respect and care for the injured. At the same time, our entire student cheering section all sat down out of respect and care. The respect, care, and class of our teams and cheering sections at events helps contribure to making our high school (in my opinion) the finest in the Nation.

Well cone and thank you Bluejacket students for being a leader and an example for others in class, respect, care, and sportsmanship!

Earlier this fall, the Bluejackets also won the Mississippi 8 Conference Volleyball Championship.

This Section Championship in Bluejacket Volleyball, is the first in school history. A BIG Congratulations to our volleyball coaching staff and team! Our team played with heart and pride and defeated an outstanding North Branch volleyball team 3-2. 25-17, 20-25, 26-28, 25-19, and 15-10 were the scores in an extremely well played match!

Thanks to our large delegation of Bluejackets fans that supported our team and coaching staff in the three section games. The numbers of parents/guardians, teachers, members of other Bluejacket coaching staffs, administrators, alumni, and resident fans was tremendous. Our large crowd celebrating the championship, with our team and coaching staff, on the gym floor at Chisago Lakes is a life-long fond memory to cherish!

We have great students at Cambridge-Isanti and North Branch. The students from both schools were loud and proud. The chanting back and forth was fun and provided for a great atmosphere: Loud chants of
" Let's Go Vikings, Let's Go Jackets"; rivalry and respect at its best!

GO BIG BLUE Volleyball!

The principal, Mitch Clausen, of Cambridge-Isanti High School announced today that Charles Barnhouse, Ryan Fredlund, and Taylor Weeks have each been named a Commended Student in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, has been presented by the principal to these scholastically talented seniors.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2015 competition for National Merit Scholarships, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2011 competition by taking the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.

Fundraising: It all adds up!
Clip and save your BoxTops or Labels for Education, keep your Kemps or Land O Lakes Milk Caps, and Swipe your Target RedCard. Although these three things seem simple and easy, they also can raise funds for our school. We can use the money for things like field trips, special classroom supplies, and other "extras" that school budgets can't fund.
In fact, together, these programs bring the school hundreds -- sometimes thousands --  of dollars each year. Remember to ask your friends, relatives and neighbors to save things too. It's a simple way to help that goes a long way.

BoxTops for Education
What to Do: Clip Box Tops coupons from hundreds of products found at your local grocery store. Each coupon is worth 10 cents when we redeem them from General Mills.

Where to Find:Pop Secret popcorn, Bugels, Chex Mix, Gardettos snacks, Cheerios, Wheaties, Chex, Total, Kix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Trix, Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms, Yoplait Go-Gurt, Pillsbury Rolls, Betty Crocker cake mixes and frosting, Bisquick, Progresso Soup, Old El Paso products, Gold Medal flour and many more! Go to www.boxtops4education.com to see a complete list of participating products.

Campbell's Labels for Education
The Labels for Education program is a great way to get FREE merchandise for our school, and Campbell's makes it so easy to redeem labels. Participating in the program is easy - simply save the UPC labels from Campbell's and other participating products and send them to school!

Other Items that can be Donated for Fundraising
Isanti Intermediate also participates in fundraising through a recycling program.  Please send empty inkjet and laser printer cartridges and used cell phones with your student or drop them off the next time you are in the building in the designated area in the main office.
Target Take Charge of Education
Here's a terrific way to raise funds for Isanti Intermediate School! All you have to do is use your Target Visa or Target Card. Target generously donates 1 percent of your Target Visa or Target Card purchases to the school of your choice - in the form of a cash donation through the Take Charge of Education program. Target tracks purchases charged to participating accounts and sends a check to us in March and September.

Sign me up!
Signing up is easy.  Just visit target.com/tcoe, or call 1-800-316-6142 to designate a school as the school to receive a percentage of your purchases.
