SSR is 2nd hour today.

The Senior Class executive board and officers need to meet today, Thursday, at 2:30 in room A12. All officers must report. See Ms. VanLieu with any questions.

Attention Students – please check your email every morning! If you receive a lunch or after school detention, it will be communicated by email the day before, to give you time to make arrangements to be there. Eventually, we will be phasing out the daily slips delivered to you during 2nd hour. Emails are sent to students and robocalls are made to parents the night before. Failure to check these communications and failure to show to scheduled detentions will result in an escalation of consequences.

Your Loy Norrix Overwatch team was also in action this weekend at Northwood. They steamrolled the competition at states to win the title. They then followed that win with an even more impressive win in the national east regional semifinals on Sunday. Led by stellar shot calling from senior captain Jackson Kiino-Terburg, the team swept through the competition with the results never in doubt. While Yancy Quinn-Cabrera and Cameron Green made the flashy plays, Sophie Decker, Elliot Russell and Evan Eldred turned in flawless performances to create space and time for Yancy and Cam to do their thing. Key contributions were also made by Foster Neve-Jones and James Hauke. Please congratulate these players if you see them. Loy Norrix was the only school to bring home two trophies from this weekend’s state competition. Great job everyone!
