Middle School Honor Society Activities: February Friendzy
For several weeks, NJHS has been organizing an activity - FEBRUARY FRIENDZY - that will be held after school on February 7th until 5:05pm. Students may PREPURCHASE a $5 ticket between January 21st and January 24th for the event that includes pizza, drink, and 2 tickets to the the Pop and Cake Walk. Tickets purchased after the 24th will be $6 and that does not include 2 tickets to the Pop and Cake Walk.

February Friendzy will be 6 consecutive 20 minute rotations with a 5 minute break in between each one. Activities in the classrooms are KARAOKE, MAFIA, DANCE CENTRAL, CHARADES, and MINUTE TO WIN IT! Students will rotate classrooms by grade and a group from each grade will go to the McCardinal Cafe for food, the Pop and Cake Walk, and Photo Booth. NJHS students will be in classrooms and will serve as directors of each activty. They hope that the students at CMS enjoy FEBRUARY FRIENDZY!

The week of February 17th through February 20th, CMS NJHS will be
facilitating a fundraiser for Pennies for Patients which is a charity that
benefits the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We hope that by having competitions between grades and gender, we can help support the children and families that are faced with these diseases.

In addition to the money raised during the two week competition, all money
collected for FEBRUARY FRIENDZY that exceeds the cost of the event,
will be donated to Pennies for Patients.

Thank you so much!

For Immediate Release

Tulsa, Ok.- Area law enforcement joined together in their third annual
multi-agency New Year DUI enforcement and prevention emphasis for the Tulsa
Metro area last night. This special project ran from 1900 until 0300 hours
with a focus on Tulsa County.

OHP Troopers saturated the high collision corridors, Tulsa Police worked
city streets and a small task force of Troopers and TPD officers combined
to assist ABLE Commission agents in checking bars and drinking
establishments with extremely high visibility. The task force sent
underage teens into drinking establishments and liquor stores for
controlled alcohol and liquor buys. There were over 15 compliance checks
performed throughout the city.

"I am extremely proud of the hard work put forth by all the law enforcement
personnel involved. We believe we can use this project as a life-saving
model for DUI prevention and enforcement efforts nationwide" stated OHP
Captain George Brown.

Troopers arrested 13 DUI drivers and TPD officers made multiple public
intox arrests. The task force issued warrants on intoxicated bar patrons
and made one felony arrest for selling liquor to a minor.

During the time of the emphasis, (1900-0300) there were ZERO collisions
reported in Tulsa County. Troopers and members of the task force remained
proactive and exercised a high tempo of contact with citizens. This is the
third year since the inception of this project that Tulsa County has
remained free of injury collisions while executing this plan.

Thank you and please have a safe and happy New Year!
