Congratulations to the Crimson Marching Band for winning the class 3A Bands of America Regional Championship this past Saturday at Bowling Green State University!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: I read an article recently about a volleyball coach and her approach to her team about practice. She stated to her players that they probably tell people all the time, “I have to go to practice, it’s a requirement.” You rarely tell people, “I get to go to volleyball practice. It’s an opportunity.” What a difference in attitude! How you view something can make a significant improvement in your approach and the results you might get. Regardless of your sport, and whether you are in season or not, why not look at every practice as an opportunity? By doing so, you may find yourself having more fun and getting better results!

The call-out meeting for the GSA will be tomorrow during the 2nd session of SRT in room 2190. The goal of the GSA is to provide a safe environment for all LGBTQ+ students and LGBTQ+ supporting students. We hope to see you there!
