  • Juniors - 


Now that Homecoming is over, it's time to start thinking about Prom 2023! The Post Prom Committee has begun with their planning and cannot go too far without a theme! This will be the first item of business once our committee is formed. 


If you have considered joining, it is a great way to boost your high school resume. It is also a great way to contribute to your peers, as well as yourself, for a fun night! There are perks to being part of the prom committee too - it isn't just all work! Most of the meetings are during lunch and prowl, but you also get a discounted prom ticket! 


Please fill out the Google form and then come to Mrs. Wachter's study hall for part 2 of the application. Friday will be the deadline to have the form filled out.


We should have at a minimum of 5 more juniors to sign up. Please let me know if you have any questions.

  • HS Staff —

The fridge in The Den smells like death and is quite disgusting. The custodial staff has graciously agreed to clean the appliance if we get it emptied of all contents.


Please have everything removed by Wednesday, October 5. By 4 pm that afternoon, I will personally throw anything away that is still left inside. (If you have condiments in the door or other things you just keep there…take those too and bring them back later in the week.)


Thank you!
