 To increase awareness among students, administrators, parents, staff and the public in general, IOSSS has launched the “See, Tell, Now!” campaign. Idaho’s First Lady Lori Otter, a former educator and children’s books author, serves as the campaign’s honorary spokesperson. She has made a number of personal appearances at schools around Idaho, where she has referred to the public awareness initiative as “…by far, to me, one of the most important things that have happened through the State Board of Education and through the Legislature.” Governor C. L. “Butch” Otter has proclaimed September 2016 “School Safety and Security Month in Idaho” and has urged all Idahoans to join in the effort by being alert and vigilant in detecting and reporting potential security threats in our public schools.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASSES 
COMPETE IN RIO JMS OLYMPICS!

Jefferson PE participated in their version of the Rio Olympics. Students picked teams of four and were given a country to represent. After practicing different track and field events, the teams competed in a track meet. There were five events and each event had to have a representative from every country. They had to have one member in each of the following events the 100m, 800m, shot put, and long jump. Together as a group they also competed in the 4x100m relay. It was great to see the everyone work their hardest to do their best for the team. It was truly a fun event to witness. After the completed event results were tallied for each class as well as school wide.

SPORTS SECTION:

FOOTBALL TEAMS LOSE CLOSE ONES AT EMMETT
The 8th Grade football team lost at Emmett last night 7-6 to fall to 1-3 on the season. Trailing 7-0 with 4 minutes remaining Mason Martin, Angel Mendoza and Alex Cruz executed a beautiful hook and ladder for a 25 yard touchdown. The potential game winning 2-point kick was blocked, but the Cougs created another scoring opportunity when Chewy Gonzalez put down a perfect on-side kick and Cruz hauled in the high bounce. The Cougars could not move the ball and Emmett ran out the clock. Football players please return to school at 3:15 for practice from 3:30-5:00.
7th grade FB team lost to emmett last night 0-14. The boys played tough just to many mistakes and things did not go our way. "They are a Great group of kids and I am very lucky to be able to coach them"Coach Mount. We have practice today at 3:00!

Despite a tremendous effort the 8th grade volleyball team lost to Kuna
last night. Myra Tovar pushed points from the serving line while the
team as a whole played their best game of the season working together
and communicating, battling an experienced Kuna team for every point.
7TH GRADE VOLLEYBALL GETS TWO HUGE WINS!
The 7th grade volleyball teams came out of Kuna yesterday with two wins. The A team came out firing from the service line behind the serving of Skyler and Dana to take a large lead and the team cruised to a 25-11 victory. The second game proved to be a bit more difficult as the Kavewomen fought for survival, but the Cougars still prevailed 25-23. The A team is now 6-2 on the year.
The B team started slow, dropping the first set 25-22. Once they got rolling, they never looked back, beating Kuna 25-18 and 15-8 to win their 5th match in a row.
