The bulbs will be available for pick-up the morning after the Spring Celebration. Checks should be made payable to Maharishi School.

BASKETBALL NEWS

The varsity boys were the happy winners of their bracket of the SuperConference tournament, putting two wins together. They have a game tonight (Friday, February 16) at Pekin. Their district game against Cardinal is next Thursday, February 22, at Waco.

The girls ended their regular season with a convincing win over North English last week. Dorothy Kern and Bonnie Carter combined for 34 points.
This week, however, their season came to an end when they lost their district game to a very strong team from Harmony. Congratulations to the girls on a great season. Everyone is looking forward to next year's season.
