IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Student-athletes can shine in a variety of ways.  It’s not always about touchdowns, points scored, or a fast time.  In fact, it’s much more than that. How do you make a difference in your community?  Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson did just that by contributing his first professional paycheck to the support staff of his team.  They had lost all of their belongings during the recent hurricane.  So yes, he gave up something he had looked forward to for a lifetime, his first pro paycheck, to help those that help him every day.  For a high school student to make a difference or show an act of kindness, it might be a “good morning” to another student, or a “thank you” to a custodian, a show of respect to those in charge, or a smile when things are going tough.  Are your actions showing that you are a caring and giving person?  There’s nothing more rewarding than making someone else happy.  Make sure you try to do so every day in your actions and words!

At tomorrow’s home football game, Junior Achievement will be hosting a raffle for the Best Seat in the House.  The winner will be named at the end of halftime and will then be able to sit on the track in a couch or recliner to watch the second half with one friend, with Pizza and refreshments!  Give it a shot and cheer on the RedHawks as we host Wawasee.

WORK PERMITS:  When you get a work permit EVERY box needs to be filled out on the Intent to Employ form before we will issue you the work permit.  Please bring completed forms to the main office in the morning and they will be completed by the end of the school day.

For all those who have signed up for the Europe trip, we will have a meeting TODAY from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in room 1010.  You and your parent or guardian need to attend.  Please email Mr. Zuber if you have any questions.

Ivette Quintero is the winner of the lunch contest for National School Lunch Week.  Her meal will be featured in the cafeteria TOMORROW.  The winning meal that she entered was posole served with sliced radish, shredded cabbage & cilantro, chasca with lime wedges, and rice & corn tortilla shells.  Ivette will receive two large pizzas as her prize.  Congratulations Ivette!
