IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: This past week a Texas high school and two of its football players were involved in an ugly exchange with a football referee. In short, the ref was blindsided and was intentionally run over and attacked by the two players. As a student-athlete, you know that emotions run high when you are competing and trying to win. However, there is never a time to justify bad behavior. Regardless of the circumstance, never lose your cool and composure. Part of competing fairly means respecting all of those involved: the officials, coaches, teammates, opponents and the fans. It’s a fact that only one team can win, but everyone loses when bad behavior and bad decision making becomes the headlines!
The junior class shirt sale has once again been extended until Thursday afternoon! Please take an order form and money (cash only) to Ms. Poling in 1410 or 8080 by Thursday after school. She also has extra order forms if needed.
Sophomore class t-shirt order forms are now available in all sophomore SRT rooms and in Mrs. Newport’s classroom (3200). The order forms are due Monday, Sept. 21st to Mrs. Newport and the shirts will cost $10. Money is due with order form.
The boys tennis team will take on Plymouth tomorrow at GMS at 4:45 p.m. The winner of this match will have the inside track to the NLC championship! It is also senior night and fan appreciation night. Student Athletic Council members will give away two slices of pizza to the first 20 students who show up to watch a few games who are NOT on the boys tennis team J
The guidance office has received the Lake Michigan Mailers scholarship for any graduating senior who plans to go to college for business. Please stop in for more information.
