SENIORS:  Many of you still need to turn in a VERTICAL WALLET sized senior photo for the class frame.  An email copy will not work for this.  We need an actual photo.  Please turn in as soon as possible so you can be included in the composite.  The list is posted by the office of those of you that need to turn one in.
**Sign up in the office!**
The sophomore class is fortunate to have the concession stand and grilling at the track meets this year. We will be selling the sandwiches from the concession stand. 
Working these events helps the class get a head start on fundraising for junior/senior year expenses and in turn, sophomores can earn work points that are required of ALL class members whether or not you plan to attend prom next year.
Generally, we need students that are not in track or golf to help with the concessions at track meets, although sometimes these athletes can help at the MS meet.
Track meets will be on April 17, 19, 24, 26 and 30th. Check to see what dates you will be available and be ready to sign up  this week in the office!
Each meet is split into two shifts.  You can work one shift or the whole time to get more points completed now instead of next year!!
Community Service Hours: The Arthur Public Library could use help at its annual
pancake breakfast fundraiser on Sunday, April 29, 2018. We could use students
who need community service hours to help us from 9:00 AM to 1:30 PM. See Mrs.
Fineran with questions.

ACT Prep Course - We will be hosting an ACT Prep Course again this fall.  The course will run from the end of September to the end of October.  The cost of the course will be $100 for each student in order to cover the cost of materials.  Please let me know if you would like to participate as soon as possible as the course is first come, first serve. - Mrs. Dooley

Juniors, Seniors, and any TAG Students interested in taking
 college credit online courses through WITCC:
You must complete a WITCC registration sheet in order to take an online course.  You must plan for the ENTIRE next year.  Take one sheet for Fall and one sheet for Spring.  They are due back to Mrs. Dooley by Monday, April 30.  You will not be able to add any WITCC online course(s) after this date for the next school year.  However, you will still be able to drop a course if you change your mind before the start of the semester in question.  The registration sheets are located just outside of the counseling office door on the wall.  Questions? Speak with Mrs. Dooley! Late registration sheets will not be accepted.

Softball Sundays will include the following dates at 1:00pm:

Note new information:  PROM PICTURE ORDER FORMS:  Prom Picture forms are available in the office.  Please take what you need for individual, couple or group photos from the photographer, Danika Hinkeldey.  Please return the forms, with payment, to the office by April 18th.  Completing the forms in advance makes the process go more quickly during prom, and eliminates the need to bring checks or cash to pay at prom.  If you want 5 x 7 of an individual or group, it will be $5 each.  Write it on the bottom of the form. Packages are also available to order for individuals – pricing the same.
