There will be a Student Council meeting today and Monday in Mrs. Kimmich's room 109. We are in the final stretch for Homecoming and need to get things finalized.
Homecoming is quickly approaching and is scheduled for Saturday, September 27. The theme is "Under the Neon Lights." Please make sure all dresses are school appropriate. If you are unsure if your dress is appropriate, ask Mrs. Nupp or Mrs. Kimmich. No inappropriate dresses will be permitted. Also, Homecoming tickets are now on sale during lunch and also some mornings. Remember, you cannot purchase tickets to Homecoming if you have overdue fees. These must be paid prior to purchasing a ticket. Ticket prices are $5 for a single ticket and $9 for a couple. If you are bringing a guest from another school, please make sure you have an out of school guest form turned in prior to the dance. These can be picked up in the front office.
