Attention Female Students! Are you interested in learning what a career in technology could mean for you? Join our EFE Information Technology students tomorrow, Thursday February 20 at 1:00 pm for a Women Rock I.T. interactive broadcast. Please sign up for this exciting presentation in the counseling office.

Attention 9th or 10th grade students: You should have received a letter at home about an upcoming presentation by the Kalamazoo County Health Department. If you have an “opt out” form from your parent or guardian, please bring it to the C-wing to give it to Ms. Tessin.

Attention Students: Please make your way to classes on time. Some of you are getting caught in hall sweeps or are facing detentions due to tardiness. Suspensions are assigned if you are caught in more than one hall sweep in a week. Teachers, you are encouraged to always have your classroom doors locked for security reasons, but must have them locked during hall sweeps.

Attention Teachers: If you know of a student who needs to be placed on the no hall pass list, please see the form that was sent out by Ms. Tessin.

On Saturday, February 22, please join the fun as our Knights take on the Central Maroon Giants for three games of basketball. During both the women’s’ and men’s’ varsity basketball games all junior and senior students are invited to enter to win a $1,000 scholarship to be used at any of the 14 top independent colleges and universities. That’s right, Michigan Colleges Alliance (MCA) will award three $1,000 scholarships to three Kalamazoo Central students and three $1,000 scholarships to three Loy Norrix students. Winners will be announced at the end of the 3rd quarter of the men’s game. Stop by the Michigan Colleges Alliance booth on Saturday to enter the drawing! Or if you are unable to attend the game visit the counseling office during passing time to complete an entry form. You do not have to be present to win.
