IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: The start of a new school year is usually fun and exciting. There’s nothing like a fresh start! How do you keep that excitement brewing? Here are a few suggestions: Keep up with your studies and make a habit of not falling behind. Eat healthy. Get plenty of rest/sleep. If you are presently involved in a sport, be engaged in the team and pay close attention to all the details it takes to become a contributor whether you start or not. The first grading period will be here before you know it. Make that your top priority!
Herff Jones will be here again today in the commons during lunch for class ring orders.
If you need an opportunity to earn extra credits or make-up credits, see your counselor to sign up for Merit on The Move that starts on Wednesday after school in the Apex Lab. Space is limited, so talk with your counselor soon!
