If you are a current sophomore or junior and are interested in travel, there will be an informational meeting for you and your parents about the next Europe Art Trip, 2018 where we will visit both Italy and Spain.  We will meet TOMORROW at 7:00 p.m. in room 1010 (across from the cafeteria).  Please see Mr. Zuber for details.

Students should take a look at their 2nd semester schedules in Skyward ASAP.  If there is a missing period in your schedule or a class you are no longer taking please fill out the “Schedule Issue” form and return it to guidance.  You can get these form from teachers, your SRT teacher or the guidance office.  PLEASE DO THIS BY FRIDAY.  Guidance will not make student request changes when we return in January, only teacher change requests.  Your schedule must be changed before you leave for Christmas break. We are trying to eliminate starting the 2nd semester with a lot of changes.  We know there will be some changes if you fail a class, or a teacher makes a recommendation for a change in placement.  Don’t wait until the last minute, the class you want may be full!

Any student interested in competing in this year’s National Shakespeare Competition should see Mr. Garvin in room 2220 prior to finals week.  Get the information so you have time to practice over break!

If you missed the Marine Biology meeting and are interested in the trip, see one of the Weavers in room 3050 to pick up an application.  Don’t delay!  There is a large interest in this year’s trip.  If you want to be considered, pick up your application form and return it as soon as possible!

Ski Club:  Don’t forget that forms and money are due by Friday, December 16th.  Also, if you are interested in ordering ski club apparel, see Mrs. Clark for an order form.  Apparel orders are also due December 16th.
