ADMINISTRATION

Good morning everyone, Superintendent Advisory Council has something important to tell you: I know that you hate how nasty and unsettling the tables are when they’re littered with grease, crumbs, and other nauseating things. I know we appreciate the good, honest, and selfless people at a table who’re neat or even the people who throw away everyone else’s trash – but we need everyone at lunch to be that way. This week, the lunch that has the cleanest reputation will win a great reward the following week. The reward will absolutely be worth the effort. Plus, it should be pretty easy. I know everyone is perfectly capable of being clean. Thank you – Sincerely, Superintendent Advisory Council

GENERAL

Any student wishing to order school pictures are reminded to bring their orders to the box in the Main Office before school closes for Thanksgiving Break.

The next after school history movie will be on Thursday Nov. 21, 12 Years a Slave.  A free black man from upstate New York is kidnapped and sold into slavery in the South. Subjected to the cruelty of his master,  he also finds unexpected kindness from another, as he struggles continually to survive and maintain some of his dignity.  This is an R rated movie and you will need a permission slip if you have not already returned one this year.  See your history teacher for extra-credit or more information.

In honor of global entrepreneurship week, here is an inspirational quote from Jessica Herrin; “You have to see failure as a beginning and the middle, but never entertain it as the end.”
