Juniors, check your school email for information pertaining to Homecoming and this upcoming school year. Also have your parents check their’s.

Juniors we need some volunteers to help sort the t-shirt order today after school. Many of the class officers are in sports, so if you can stay after a couple of hours and help Mrs. Batora and Ms. Blank, it would be greatly appreciated.

Juniors don’t forget to bring in bags of candy to toss off the float during the Homecoming parade next Friday. Please bring these to Mrs. Batora and Ms. Blank.

Juniors we need volunteers to dress in red and walk with the float during the Parade and toss candy to spectators in Elsie this Friday. The parade starts at 4:00 pm, so you’d need to be in Elsie by about 3:45. Please see Ms. Blank or Mrs. Batora if you’re able to to this for your class.

Sophomore class dues will be collected this week during both lunches. They are $6.

The bar has been set very high. Haden Thompson shot a huge 10-point with a 19 1/2” spread during the youth season. It will take a good deer to beat that one. Good Luck! Bring a picture of you and your deer to room C-14 for the trophy beard.
