A Look Ahead to the Week

Snow Days Affect Schedule

In case you didn't noticed, we managed to not have a full day of school last week!! We have now missed about 7 days of school due to snow and this will affect our school calendar for the remainder of the year. When we find out final information about graduation and the end of school, we will share it with you.

Polar Bear Plunge

On Feb. 1st, a large group of students headed to Boonville to take part in the annual Polar Bear Plunge. It's a fundraiser to raise money for the Special Olympics. Check out the pics below.

HEROES Southwest Indiana Cook-Off

Congrats to the 4 students who went to the Cook-Off yesterday in Evansville. They competed against 7 other SW Indiana High Schools. Michael Smith, Samantha Meserve, Breanne Embry, and Morgan Embry competed and were judged by professional cooks along with Channel 45's Meteorologist Ron Rhodes (on the right of the pic).

Worthless Website of the Week

Chrome Extension of the Week

This week's extension is Thesaurus. It's a quick extension to use when writing those long papers for Language Arts and when you need to use some different words from the English language. I used to call it useful, but now I call it 'utilitarian.' CLICK HERE for more info.
