IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: This past weekend the NFL held their annual draft. Two of the first three picks were quarterbacks and over 200 college players were selected for the opportunity to play on Sundays. However, it was the quote from the 3rd player taken, by the New York Jets, that caught my attention. Sam Darnold, the quarterback out of the University of Southern California, had the classiest comment after his name was called. Upon leaving the stage after his selection, Darnold said, “Whatever the coaches want me to do, whether they want me to sit or want me to play, I want to star in my role.” In this day of self-promoting athletes, it’s great to see that this up and coming professional player has the proper outlook. High school student-athletes need more role models that they can look up to and emulate. Let’s hope more athletes at all levels share Darnold’s philosophy and star in their role!
HELP WANTED: Sweet Corn Charlie Produce is looking for hardworking students with a good attitude for outdoor summer jobs. Apply by June 9th by e-mailing email@example.com or leave a message for Tami on their application line at 574-304-7270.

This program is for any student who is staying after school. All student-athletes, club members, music participants, drama participants, after school homework help kids, etc. are strongly encouraged to stop by the cafeteria after school and take advantage of this generous opportunity. Students just need to show their ID and they can grab a healthy snack to go that will hold them over during their after school activities until dinner. The cafeteria will stay open until 3:55 p.m. to hand out the snacks. All students picking up the healthy snack after school will need to eat their snack in the cafeteria. We appreciate your cooperation with this adjustment that is mandated by the state of Indiana in order to continue this program.
If you are a student that leaves the building at any time during normal school hours then you must have a sticker on your ID if it’s for a class (PACT, Building Trades, EACC, Merit, shortened schedules, Red Zone, internship, yearbook, etc.) that indicates that or a blue pass from the office indicating that you have permission to leave. Building Trades, EACC and Red Zone students are also required to sign out at the Welcome Center before leaving.
Online yearbook sales are set up! All you have to do is go to www.yearbookordercenter.com and enter our school code (14723) to order your yearbook or yearbook ad.
