STANTON COMMUNITY SCHOOL BULLETIN DECEMBER 15, 2017
The FCCLA is sponsoring a basketball Pink Out on Tuesday, January 23rd, when we play Essex. We hope to do another order of t-shirts (the same t-shirt that was sold for the volleyball Pink Out). The order form will be in the high school office after the first of the year. Other activities are being planned-watch the bulletin for more details. All of the money raised goes to the Montgomery County Relay for Life.
Holiday Food Drive
The Student Council and 5th grade class would like to have a Holiday Food Drive to help area families. We want to have a contest for K-5th and 6th-12th classes, to see who can “rack up” the most points from now until December 20th. December 18th through December 20th, the food drive contest will have an “overtime”. All items will be worth double the points. We are
thankful for the items already donated! Please continue to support this local cause!
Please bring items to your homeroom class. They will be picked up and counted daily by the 5th grade class. We are thankful for the support during this holiday season!
The following point system will allow us to see which class can earn the most points. The elementary class winner and 6th-12th grade winner will earn a movie and pizza party in January!
PLEASE, WHEN DONATING ITEMS, MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT OUTDATED!!

Stanton raised its record to 3-1 with a 44-28 win over Heartland Christian, Tuesday, December 5th, in Stanton. Stanton opened up a close contest in the 3rd frame with a pesky defense that created points off steals. "We were doing a nice job of double teaming and trapping in the first half but Heartland dealt with it fairly well, in the second half Hope Ogletree was able to come up with one on one steals and convert layups which gave us a nice lead." Another area of dominance for the Queens came on the offensive boards. Savanna Moffett and Shelby Brockshus had 5 and 4 offensive rebounds "but in general the team had a great night with 18 offensive boards"
The Viqueens took on East Mills last Friday in a close contest throughout the game as both teams struggled to get it going offensively. The Queens came out on the short end of the stick, 26-33. Coach Snyder commented, "We simply did not get a good look at the basket in the first half, the double team they put on our wing really frustrated us. Finally in the second half Tara Peterson was able to connect on a couple 10-12 foot jump shots. We were able to hit some outside shots and stay with them, otherwise points were hard to generate." East Mills was able to score on Stanton turnovers to open up a 4th quarter lead.
Stanton Girls rolled to their 4th victory of the season defeating Essex 39-24 at Essex on Tuesday night. An excellent defensive effort that netted points off Essex turnovers and the Queens handling the Essex full court press with better efficiency were keys to victory. "Essex did create some problems for us with their inside game, hitting their post players with timely passes and hitting the offensive boards. We definitely felt the pressure of their possible comeback deep into the 4th quarter," said Coach Snyder.
Stanton Vikings played East Mills and came away with a win of 56-29. Coach Blunt commented, “I thought we hurried ourselves the 1st half and did not adjust from not shooting as well as we wanted to. Our defense picked up the 2nd half and we were a little more patient on the offense end to increase a 10 point lead to the 27 point win margin.”
The Vikings were in play on Tuesday at Essex and picked up their 3rd conference win and 4th overall with a score of 88-35. “We got off to a good start and were able to score around the basket to get the early lead of 24-7 at the end of the 1st quarter and then extended it out to 47-14 at half and 66-19 at the end of the 3rd quarter. I thought our half-court defense did a good job but we fouled too much in the full court defense,” said Coach Blunt
Junior High Girls Basketball
The junior high girls team faced East Mills again and Stanton finished 28-20. The Queens played another two quarters and won, 10-4. Recently playing Essex, the Viqueens finished with another win, 49-9. The team travels to Tabor tonight to battle Fremont-Mills Knights at 3:45 PM. The Viqueens will also be playing Sidney on Tuesday with a game time of 3:30 PM in Stanton. The team continues to appreciate the wonderful support of the school, friends, families, and community!
Junior High Boys Basketball
The Jr. Vikes continue to improve on the basketball court and have gained a few more victories in the process. The boys defeated East Mills-“A” game, 38-30 and “B” game, 33-20 and Essex-“A” game 53-12 and “B” game (1-10 minute quarter), 8-2. The boys are at home tonight against Fremont-Mills and will travel to Sidney, December 19th.
