Calling All Student Designers!
Spirit Gear Design Competition!
Have you ever looked at our THS Spirit Gear and thought "I could make something cooler than that!"? Well now is your chance! We are going to let YOU design our next round of spirit gear. Each grade will get their own gear, so you can make a grade specific design. You have this week to create and submit a design. Next week, each grade will get to vote on their favorite. Then we will order and print them! Here are a couple of guidelines:
-Submit your design by email to email@example.com by midnight on Friday 1/15
-Your design needs to be digital and no more than three colors
-Use your grad year instead of you class name (so that you want to wear it after this year)
-If you have any other questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org for clarification
Purchase your 2021 yearbook today!
Our records currently show that only 82 people have pre-purchased a yearbook. While we are sure more people will want our record of this year "like never before," we will have trouble setting an accurate book count unless you pre-purchase your yearbook. If you think you will want to have a copy of this year's book, you need to order it by Jan. 31. The cost is $60. While you can drop off a check (student name and yearbook purchase in the memo line), you can also pay online using the online store.
Don't wait! Order today!
Attendance calls and texts have started to go out to families whose student was marked absent for one of more class periods. If you have questions please visit our THS Attendance Website. To excuse an absence please have your student's ID ready and call 503-431-5430.
