Have you noticed random posters around school with weird looking barcodes on them? Those are QR codes, and you can hover your phone's camera over them to watch a video about the different types of drugs that we've been researching in Forensic Science! Tell your friends!

Completed forms and money is to be turned in to Room 245.  Don't miss out 


Writing Help: 

Maybe you have a writing assignment that’s due soon, or a college essay you need to finish up.  Why not stop by the Learning Commons during your lunch period to get some help with your writing? Mr. Velten, a retired ELA teacher, will be in the Learning Commons on Tuesdays and Thursdays to give you the help you need. So bring that paper or essay in, and we’ll help you to improve your sentences, make your thesis more clear, and brush up those spelling and punctuation problems! Again, for help with ELA or writing for any of your subjects, stop by the Learning Commons today during periods 3 through 7 and see Mr. Velten for writing help. Oh, and one more thing . . . Mr. Velten is also in the Learning Commons every day from 3 to 5 PM. So if you’re waiting for practice to start, or you’re killing time until the late bus comes, or if you just don’t want to go home right away, then stop by for some writing help. Once again, Tuesdays and Thursdays, periods 3 to 7, and every day from 3 to 5 PM, in the Learning Commons for some writing help.


And finally…  

I started reading a horror story in braille. Something bad is going to happen, I can feel it!
