IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Everyone that plays athletics at any level will suffer a tough loss from time to time. If you are a Michigan football player, last week’s loss to rival Michigan State is as tough as they come. Michigan’s punter fumbled the snap and MSU scored with no time left to win the game. Was it the punter’s fault? Was it a bad snap? Was it a coaching decision? In the long run, it doesn’t really matter. But one thing I do know is this: never let a play or game, good or bad, define you as a person. What really defines you is what you learn from your sport’s experience. Hopefully it makes you a better person and helps prepare you for future challenges in life!

Do you want to scare your sweetheart? Frighten your friends?  Treat them with a sweet Jambagram this week!  National Honor Society will be selling Jambagrams during all lunches tomorrow-Thursday.  Look for our table down by the Red Zone!

Seniors – Ivy Tech will be here on Thursday for an onsite admissions visit.  Sign up in the guidance office and receive an admissions visit on the spot.
