NORTHWESTERN HIGH SCHOOL
Friday, October 9, 2015
Congratulations to Ashley Dunn for being chosen Student of the Day!
It’s hard to lead a cavalry charge if you think you look funny on a horse.
Northwestern Student Council will be collecting non-perishable food in conjunction with the Ruritan Food Drive. Each class MUST donate a minimum of 100 cans in order to be eligible to participate in the Powder Puff games!!! Expired food will NOT be accepted and won't count toward your class minimum. Classes will receive spirit points based on how many items are donated. The class that donates the most items will make the bracket for the Powder Puff tournament! All food MUST be in by Friday, October 23.
The Powder Puff game is scheduled for WEDNESDAY, Nov. 4. Coaches and athletes should sign up in English class!
Sophomores: Jostens will be here to take orders for class rings on Tuesday, October 13.
Lifetouch will be here on Thursday, October 15 for picture retakes. You may pick up an order form in the front office.
Full cast and costume crew meeting will be held today, October 9th during Extra Help for costume measurements.
Academic challenge practice will be on Tuesdays. We will meet after school in the library. If you are unable to attend, please see Mrs. Hines.
The Junior Parents Post Prom committee is raffling off ¼ of a steer that is being donated by the Rich & Stacey Kline family and is grain fed with no added hormones or implants. Cuts of meat will include ground beef, roasts and steaks, to name a few! This is approximately a $700 value! Processing will be done at the Butcher Block & Deli in Wooster and is included.
Tickets will be sold at all home football games, and possible other home sporting events, or by contacting Klines directly @ 419-651-3377.
Ticket prices are one for $1 or 6 for $5. The drawing will take place on October 23rd at the last home football game. You do not need to be present to win! Good Luck and thanks for your support.
It's time to start thinking snow!
