IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Are you familiar with your school’s athletic code of conduct? I’m sure it is discussed at the beginning of each sport as you start that season. All student-athletes need to be aware of the do’s and don’ts of what is expected, in and out of season. Rules and regulations are laid out and you are expected to follow them. If you have any questions or you are not sure of a rule, sit down with a coach or the athletic director for any clarity. Following these rules is a no-brainer. Don’t look for shortcuts and exceptions. If you do something wrong, expect to pay the consequences!
There were 48 German students who participated in a conference last weekend at Ball State University. A special congratulations goes to Julia Giddens for placing 1st in the Level 2 Vocabulary and 3rd in the Level 2 Impromptu Speaking and Cade Cleveland for placing 3rd in the Level 2 Spelling! Herzlichen Glückwünsch!
