NORTHWESTERN HIGH SCHOOL
Friday, October 24, 2014
The library will be closed periods 1-4 next week due to OGT testing. The computer lab will remain open.
There will be a junior parent post-prom committee meeting on Tuesday, October 28th at 7:00pm in the high school commons. All junior parents interested in helping plan for post prom, please attend.
There are still many drug consent forms that have not been turned in, if you are a winter or spring athlete or any student involved in any extra-curricular clubs, you must have one signed and turned in to the front office as soon as possible.
The STAR leadership team's mission statement this year is -- "Drug Free and Husky Proud"!! Once a week we will be having a Drug Free Spirit Day! Spirit points will be counted and kept through the entire year. The winning class will receive an award at the end of year.
Wednesday, October 29 Multi Color Day -- Each class will wear a specific color - to be announced soon - stay tuned!!
Let's get the competition going! The buy-in for Powderpuff is 100 cans. Since no class is eligible to play as of now and canned goods are due today, we have decided to move back the due date to next Thursday, October 30. Instead of Mrs. Nupp putting together the bracket, we will let the class with the winning number of canned goods choose the order of the bracket-this includes teachers. Not enough? How about your WHOLE class getting out of class 2 minutes early for lunch for an entire week just for bringing in the most cans? First in the lunch line? Sounds great. There will also be a food reward for the CLASS that brings in the most cans-not just the powderpuff team. Get those cans in so your class can win an early lunch for a week, choose the bracket, and have the benefit of a food reward during Huddle!
There are flyers in the front office for the West Salem Branch of the Wayne Co. Public Library. Please stop by and pick one up to see what is happening at the library in November.

Northwestern Bad Dog Boarders and Skiers: The transportation is full. However, you can still join the club at our great price rates. Get the information code from Mrs. White to sign up online at Snow Trails. Awesome Hoodie & T-shirt orders are available until Oct. 29th.
2013-2014 yearbooks are in! If you pre-ordered, you may stop by Mrs. Hudson's room in between classes or during Extra Help to pick up your book. Please do not come during class time.
Just a reminder that federal law requires males to register for the selective service when you turn 18. Go to www.sss.gov to register.
Any student who will be driving to school this year will need to stop in at the front office and pick up a parking permit application. This year we will be issuing parking permits to be kept in your car.

Students - especially seniors - and parents are encouraged to attend to learn more details about scholarship searches, grants, loans and how to file the FAFSA.
