If you love to read, please make a list of books that you would like for the library. I will be ordering books really soon.
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 orders should now be done online at www.thegraduationcenter.com Extra packets and order forms are located at the office and the library.

Students who have loaner Chromebooks from the Library need to return them ASAP. We will not be able to check out 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. When you return your loaner Chromebooks, please make sure you place them back on the chargers.
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.

We've recently launched the $18K Ryan Yebba Memorial Mental Health Scholarship, and we'd love to receive more applications across the country. Since the application deadline is coming soon, we're hoping to collaborate with Fayette High School to help fight student debt by sharing the news.
Here are the basic details of our scholarship:
Eligibility: Any high school junior or senior who is interested in going into a mental health field may apply for this scholarship if they’re devoted to creating a positive social change and progress in our schools.
Application Deadline: May 10, 2024

The Dr. Darrell “Jack” Holley | MUSIC Scholarship application is now available. Six $2,000.00 scholarships (non-renewable) will be awarded to students who graduate in 2024 from high schools in MUSIC member districts. Only ONE application from our district can be submitted. Since we are only allowed one application for this scholarship, I want those of you interested in applying to write a one-page essay about why you deserve the scholarship and how it will help you pay for college. Please have your essays submitted to me by Wednesday, January 10th to be considered for the scholarship.
