Good Monday Morning,
I hope everyone had a great weekend and that you were able to enjoy many of the Homecoming festivities that took place throughout the week. I would like to commend and thank all of the Student Council members for all of the hard work they put into last week s homecoming to ensuring that staff, students and community had a great homecoming experience. All of the events, to include the pep assembly, parade and dance were all a huge success! Lastly we would like to thank Bill and Jerry Fayling of American Traditions Fireworks for donating the wonderful firework show at half time!
I have not heard the results on how well the Grad Bash mattress sale went, but I want to thank all those that attended and all that worked to make this event possible, thank you!

If you are looking for some new spirit wear or some holiday gift ideas, please see the attached order forms for a spirit order that Parchment Athletics will be having this year. Please look at the STUDENT order information attached below. The order window will close on October 12th and there is an anticipate 2-3 weeks after the order closes for production and delivery.

As I mentioned last week, Khan Academy has partnered with the College Board to offer free, personalized practice for the redesigned SAT. The program looks pretty cool. Kids take a diagnostic test before they even start to practice. The program will then design their practice material specifically based on their needs. Please help pass this info along to juniors. I have attached a flyer with more information for you.
Thank you and have a great week!
