“Ghostly Sweets for the Holiday” Contest

I was working in the library late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my biology from the table began to rise
And suddenly, to my surprise…

Take a break from all the “ghooling” madness of the holiday season and come check out the Library.  In addition to having all the materials and studying tools you need to get ready for all of your “beastly” projects, we are sponsoring a holiday contest for all students! Come check out the jar of goodies located at the Circulation counter and make your best guess.  The prize for the closest guess is the jar of goodies of course!  The lucky winner will be announced on Monday, October 31st (Igor not included).


The Arapahoe diving team will have a mandatory meeting in the swimming pool area on Wednesday at 2:20 PM. Please see coach Richmond if you can not attend.

Attention all JV Boys Tennis Players:  If you did not attend the banquet last night, you need to see Coach Brayton as soon as possible to pick up your team gifts.
