SSR is 3rd hour today

Need community service hours or just like to sing? We are going to go Christmas Caroling right after school today at a nursing home. Meet Mrs. May by her door next to the C-wing computer lab. We will be back at school at around 4pm.

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.

Come to the GSA Holiday Party on Friday from 2:30 – 3:30 in the library!

Senior and Freshman tee shirts are on sale this week. Please bring your orders to A12 at any time during the day with the correct change. Cash only no checks. We need a minimum of 50 orders to make the shirts. Do not delay and miss out on some really unique designs. See Ms. Van Lieu in A12. Order forms are posted throughout the school.

Attention all students. Today the PBIS team will be hosting the 1st Academic Celebration of the year during 4th and 5th period. In order to attend, you must have met the criteria from 1st trimester:
No Referrals and one of the following: 3.5 GPA or perfect attendance.
To see if you qualify you must pick up your wristband in the cafeteria during any lunch period on Thursday, December 19. Only students who get a wristband will be allowed to attend the celebration. Students will be dismissed from class at the start of the 4th period, so don’t forget to check the list in the cafeteria today!

Attention dual enrolled students! If you are planning on dual enrolling next semester & have not handed in your paperwork please turn it in to Mrs. DeHaan in the counseling office ASAP.

Attention students: If you ordered a timber ridge ski pass, those are available to be picked up in the athletic office

If you are a member of the 2021 Executive Board and are going to Sky Zone on Friday. Please let Mrs. May, Ben Sierra-Torres or Breyon Richards know.

Do you think you could be the next Bugha? Loy Norrix is going to be competing in Fortnite this coming winter and we need players. The competition will feature teams of 2, so grab a friend and come to Mr. Greeley’s room, B13, at lunch, before school, or after school to sign up. It’s totally free to play and participate and we’d like as many teams as possible. The deadline is this Friday, December 20, so don’t delay!

We will be instituting Saturday School starting after winter break. Students may be assigned to Saturday School for repeated violations and other infractions. If you have been repeatedly asked to remove your hood, you will be assigned detention or Saturday School depending on the frequency of your violations. If it’s a habit to pull your hoodie up, break the habit – don’t wear a hoodie. Thank you for helping us with this safety issue that we have discussed multiple times.

Seniors have you heard about Southwestern Community College? This college is located an hour away from Kalamazoo, and it is located in Dowagiac, MI. This college offers on-campus apartments and a 2 plus 2 program with Ferris State. Loy Norrix will be visiting Southwestern community college on January 16. Please see Mrs. Soisson in K5E for permission slips and any questions.
