 General Announcements

Juniors (and interested Sophomores) registration for PSAT is now open! Come to the Guidance Department and sign up with Mrs. Ives. Cost for PSAT is $18.  Registration is from now until Oct. 13th.   PSAT test will be happening Wednesday morning, Oct. 19th.  We are encouraging every junior to take this test.  The PSAT is the only exam to qualify a student for National Merit Scholar Status, when taken during junior year.

ATTENTION ALL JUNIORS AND SENIORS: The 2017 trip to Washington D.C. is here again!  This trip is an amazing opportunity to experience Washington D.C. and Capitol Hill first hand.  This year will be especially exciting and relevant because we will have a new President and many changes in Congress.  There will be a parent/guardian meeting for those interested in this trip on Wednesday, October 12th at 6 PM in the Room W-2882.  Please feel free to join your parent or guardian, and if you are unable to attend the meeting, please see Mr. Hawthorne or Mrs. Winn in the Social Studies department.

It’s that time of year for eligible juniors and seniors to start applying for membership in National Honor Society!  If you are a junior with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher, or a senior with a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher, then you are eligible to apply for membership.  Eligible students should have received a letter inviting them to apply and also explaining the application process.
   This letter also tells you about important informational meetings going on this week.  If you are applying for membership in NHS, and you have not attended one of these meetings yet, you MUST attend the meeting after school today at 2:20 in room C-1457.  Remember that these meetings are only for eligible juniors and seniors, so if you are unsure whether you are eligible, please contact Mr. Smith, Ms. McGeorge, or Ms. Leclaire.

Juniors and Seniors:  Anyone interested in taking a Concurrent Enrollment class next semester at Arapahoe Community College should plan on attending a meeting this Friday, October 14th in the forum. This will take place during both lunches, so feel free to bring your lunch.  Applications will be available at that time and the deadline to register will be at the end of October. This is another great opportunity to earn both high school and college credit. Please see your counselor for more information.

Warriors, October is Safe Schools Month!  Stop by the table in front of the counseling office in the cafeteria during both lunches to contribute to our gratitude chain and to pick up resources for keeping yourself and others safe.  Go out to the circle drive during lunch to learn from our school resource officers about the dangers of drinking and driving.  We hope to see you there!
