Once again, for help with your writing, stop by the Learning Commons today during your lunch period."

From the Student Affairs Office

On Friday, we will have an optional Dress Down Day to benefit Vikingthon, which takes place that evening from 3:00 - 9:00 PM. Bracelets for the Dress Down Day will cost $2 and can be purchased in the cafeteria tomorrow during all lunches and Friday morning in homeroom. All students must wear the bracelet that they will receive for the Dress Down Day; these will be distributed to all students in HR on Friday. (Even the students who pay on Thursday will get the bracelet on Friday.) Those participating in the Dress Down Day should wear something pink or gold to show awareness for childhood cancer.

Please remember. there should be no:

  • flip flops
  • shorts
  • clothing with inappropriate wording or images
  • bare midriffs or crop tops
  • hats
  • sunglasses

Thank you for your support of this wonderful cause. Please let me know if you have any questions.


And finally… 

Sources say that people saying “boo” to their friends has risen by 85% in the last year. This is a frightening statistic.
