Attention freshmen: Link Crew is hosting a Holiday Jam party for freshmen only today, Wednesday, December 18th, right after school in the cafeteria. There will be music, movies, prizes, cookie decorating and more. Grab your friends and come have a good time before break fully starts. 

We appreciate all Interact students together with their parents who attended our get together dinner yesterday at Fetzer Centre. There will be Interact club meeting today at 2:30pm in the cafeteria. This will be our last meeting for the year 2019. 

Come cheer on your Kalamazoo United Hockey team against Portage Central tonight, Dec. 18th. The puck drops at 5:15 on the blue rink at Wings West. Admission is $5.00

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. 

Today during all 3 lunches the junior class will be selling Candy Cane Grams. For $1.00 you can send someone special in your life a special message with the flavor of candy cane of your choice! These will be delivered on Thursday and Friday during 3rd and 4th period. 

Do you need community service hours or just want to go Christmas Caroling- meet Mrs. May by her door next to the C-wing computer lab this Thursday, Dec 19th right after school. We will be going to Clare Bridge nursing home and will return by 4:15. 

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