From the desk of Mr. Lewis

Wolverine Family,

Today was the final day of the 3rd nine weeks. Report cards will be available (via Harmony) on Friday, March 17.

We want to thank Mrs. Dixon and her entire Dance Marathon team for their philanthropic efforts this year. Their culminating event will be this evening here at the HS. All HS students are encouraged to attend for a $10 dollar donation. Pictures of the event will be in next weeks issue!

Good luck to the dance team as they travel to Lafayette Jeff HS to compete in the state dance finals.

Attention seniors, be sure to check out all the scholarship opportunities in Mrs. Mansfields section of the newsletter.

Student Handbook Reminder

Just a reminder to all students (and their families) about a few handbook concerns we are seeing at the high school. Just a reminder that all water bottles being used during the school day must be clear. Also, students are not allowed to carry a backpack from class to class. All backpacks should be stored in the students locker. It is both a safety and space issue.
