HS Announcements, Wednesday August 18, 2010

Yearbooks will be distributed during NAIL period on Friday.  There are only a few yearbooks remaining for purchase.  The price is $40.  See Mrs. Albert if you would like to purchase a yearbook.
Students can not be dismissed early for lunch this year due to the earlier start time for lunch.  Mr. Works will try to use a "speed pass" system that will allow different groups to eat first on a rotating basis. Each week a different class (freshmen, sophomores, juniors, or seniors) will be allowed to "cut" in line ahead of the other students.  Since we only have three days this week, seniors have the "speed pass" on Wednesday, juniors on Thursday, and freshmen and sophomores on Friday.  If students don't participate in a fair and honest manner, the procedure will be eliminated and those students with a first floor NAIL period will always get to eat lunch first.
Part time Beck students will be attending classes beginning today.
The New Athens Cross Country Invitational is next Tuesday, August 24th.  The girl's race is at 4PM and the boys run at approximately 4:45.  Mr. Works is looking for volunteers (adults or students) to help with the race. Students are also encouraged to come down to Okaw Park to support the runners in their first meet.
Please give a warm welcome to MS Middendorf who will be student teaching with Mr. Knippel in the Art department this semester.
