DEBATE TEAM: Meeting every Tuesday from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Schedules are available at the Main Office.

PSAT:
Any sophomore who is interested in taking the PSAT, which will be administered in the cafeteria on Wednesday, October 16, should sign up in Guidance as soon as possible. Space is limited and registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The test fee is $14.

2013 YEARBOOKS HAVE ARRIVED:
The 2013 yearbooks have just arrived; if you ordered a copy you can pick it up at the high school main office. There is a limited number of extras books if you did not purchase one you can still do so for $65.00.

STUDENT PHOTOS & ID PICTURES RETAKES:
OCTOBER 1 will be the retake day! It is important that ALL students in grades 10, 11, and 12 have their pictures taken, even if they are not purchasing photos. These photos are needed to update student ID cards, used in Power School, and also used for underclass photos in the Yearbook. Also, photo ID cards are now required for entrance to the SAT test. THERE IS NO COST for this. Students pay only if they choose to purchase a package. Please encourage everyone to have their photos updated as their appearances often change dramatically over the summer! FORMS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE MAIN OFFICE. Please also note the forms must be handed to the photographer at the time photo is taken.
Another Note: For the seniors, these ID pictures are not to be confused with their formal senior portraits which were taken in August and for which makeup sessions are scheduled for September 26, 27 & 30. They should still get an updated ID photo taken for school purposes.
Any ninth grader who was absent on freshman orientation day should also report to have his/her picture taken.
Please remind students that appropriate dressed is required—no hats, tank tops, low cut blouses, etc.

SENIOR PORTRAITS: Will also be taken Thursday, September 26, Friday, September 27 and Monday, September 30. So if you missed the August appointment you will have another opportunity to have your photos taken.
