IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  All teachers and coaches use the expression “no excuses” from time to time.  Have you made excuses for not playing well or making a poor grade in the classroom?  It’s easy to place blame on others to cover-up your own deficiencies.  However, making excuses is rarely justified.  Not only that, teachers and coaches don’t like hearing about it.  Other than sickness or a justified injury, don’t use a weak excuse if you under-perform.  Instead, take accountability and move on to your next challenge.  By doing so, you will gain the respect and confidence of all those around you!

Students who did not pick up senior products last week will have one additional chance.  Jostens will return Tuesday, May 3rd from 7:45-8:25 a.m.  Once again only cash or money orders will be accepted as payment.  Students with questions should contact Jostens directly at Greg.muncy@jostens.com or (260) 483-1825.
