Attention all students!
With winter finally over, it’s time to get ready for Spring; and that means getting rid of your warm clothing and finding your “cooler” clothes! Do you have clothes you no longer want to wear & would like to get rid of them?
Well, our school is having a “Clothing Drive Competition” beginning next week. From Monday, April 28th through Friday, May 2nd , you can bring in your GENTLY-USED items, ages infant through adult. Be sure ALL items have been washed and cleaned as they will be donated to “Helping Hands” in West Salem.
This is a school-wide competition that will benefit our local community AND you! One Spirit Point for your grade will be awarded with each item you bring in. Also, the winning grade gets to pick the order of teams playing for the Muscle Volleyball Game on May 7th. All clothing should be taken to Mrs. Freed’s room, 104, every morning.
Thanks for your help and let’s try to break our school record of collecting 1,200 items a couple years ago!

Attention male volleyball players! Muscle Volleyball is back! Girls-get your teams together and make sure your all male team is ready for some grade level and teacher based competition that will take place on Wednesday, May 7 at 5:30. Last year the teachers won-let's see if they can take home the win again. If your team is making t-shirts, make sure they are approved by Mrs. Nupp or Mr. Renner prior to ordering.
There will be a senior class picture taken during graduation practice on May 29th @ 9am in the gym.
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.
