Congratulations to the FFA for their performance last night in parliamentary procedure and job interview contests. The job interview contest was won for their age groups by Phil Eberly and Katie Stull. Christie Franks and Marie Chellis were both 2nd in their age groups. The novice parliamentary procedure team and varsity team each won their competition and will move onto the district level.
Students that are interested in taking Clean Energy 1 or 2 should sign up in Mrs. Michalak’s room. Not sure? Ask a current student.
Northwestern High School is beginning our “Share A Christmas” campaign for this year! We are starting a week early this year so you can do some early “Black Friday” shopping!!
This campaign is run and sponsored by STAR and this is our 17th year of sharing our blessings and gifts with children in our own school district.
We have A LOT of children to buy for this year, so PLEASE share your love, care and concern during this holiday season and pick a card from the tree in the main office. PLEASE make sure that you when you take a card, sign the sheet on the office counter with YOUR name and the NUMBER on the card. You can buy as much as you want, but PLEASE try and buy at least one clothing item and at least one toy for each child.
These gifts NEED to be wrapped and returned to Mrs. Hannah’s room by December 15th, WITH the card attached to it. There are only 5 cards left on the tree!
Photo IDs for the Bad Dog Boarders and Skiers will be taken on Thursday, December 3rd from 10:30 to 11:30 am at the Middle School.
Reminder: All student school fees are due by January 5th. These must be paid in order to continue participation in athletics and school clubs or to buy tickets for prom in the spring. If you have any questions regarding your fees please come to the front office.
The Foreign Language club is sponsoring a coat, hat, and glove drive benefiting People to People. Please bring in any unwanted or unneeded items. There is a box in the library for these items.
The FFA is now starting their fruit sale. The sale consists of navels, red navels, tangelos, pink grapefruit and BBQ sauce. Contact a FFA member or Dan Fulk or Heather Tegtmeier to order.
