    Here is some information from MSHSAA about tickets for the upcoming State Golf Tournament:

    DIGITAL TICKETS (MANDATORY):  There will be absolutely NO walk-up CASH ticket sales at any MSHSAA State Championships.

    • Digital tickets are currently available by navigating to www.mshsaa.org, and selecting the TICKETS icon at the top of the home page. 

    • Each State Golf Championship Location has its own digital ticket, which is valid at that location only.

    • A separate ticket is required for each day of the Championships.

    NHS: If you haven’t paid your NHS dues, please see Ms. Swanson.  


    Speeches for Class Officers with contested races will be presented tomorrow on Friday during 8th hour. Voting will start immediately after.


    Musical Auditions for students grades 6-12 are Tuesday, October 17, 3:45-5:00; Wednesday, October 18, 3:45-6:00; Thursday, October 19 3:45-6:00. Auditions will be held in the DC Music Room. Sign up for a time with Mrs. Miner. If you have a conflict, contact Mrs. Miner to make arrangements for a different audition time. 


    Dress Code: Many students are not abiding by the school dress code. Make sure that you have extra clothing available to change or we can provide something for you. Continuous dress code violations or defiance when asked to change will result in being sent to Mr. Dobson with a discipline referral. Mr. Dobson shared the dress code policy on the 1st day of school, so all students were informed.


    Jostens Graduation Order Day was TODAY. If you didn’t place your order today, you will need to order online at www.thegraduationcenter.com Extra packets and order forms are located at the office and the library.


    Student’s interested in purchasing an FHS letterman jacket, forms are located at the office and in the library.


    Seniors: Please do not park in the four parking places nearest the building next to the football field or the parking place adjacent to the disabled spaces. These are reserved for the Parents as Teachers Play Center.


    Students who have loaner Chromebooks from the Library need to return them ASAP. We will not be able to checkout loaners if they are not returned at the end of the hour/day of which you are using the computer. If you have already received your one-to-one personal Chromebook, make sure you bring those to school every day. The loaners are needed for students that have yet to receive their personal Chromebook.  


    THERE SHOULD BE NO LIVESTREAMING DURING SCHOOL. Cell phones are only to be used by teacher's permission. Violations of this rule will result in a discipline referral.

    There weren’t  a lot of students that signed up for clubs. Club Dues will be open again  from Tuesday, October 10th - Friday, October 13th.
