Good morning, Falcons! Hope you all have warm and cozy toes today - love seeing all the holiday socks!
Great job collecting all your dimes (and sabotaging other classrooms) - we’re still counting everything and will hopefully know which class won (and lost!) very soon! Remember, the class who earned the most positive points can choose between a pizza or donut party next week, and the class with the most negative points will also earn donuts! Pizza or donuts sound like a great way to make finals a little less painful!
Speaking of finals, don’t forget - if you’re a freshman and would like some help studying for finals, please join us in the cafeteria on Monday after school for Cocoa and Cram! We’ll have people who can help you with your studying and we’ll also be handing out hot cocoa and treats! The event will run until 5:00pm, and there will be a late bus. Don’t miss out!
Formal ticket sales will resume on Monday at the price of $55. The finance office will be closed today. More ticket information is on the IHS website, Instagram, and posted at the Finance Office and Activities Office.
If you’d like to apply for formal royalty, pick up an application in the Activities Office. The formal court is made up of all grade levels, but you must have a 2.0 GPA from Quarter 1, and your application must be approved through the deans’ office. Applications must be submitted to the deans’ office no later than Tuesday, December 20.
If your class is participating in the door decorating contest, we’ll be judging during 3rd period today - may the best door win!
If you're feeling stressed or nervous about finals, stop by the library to pick up an encouraging note from the United Nations Club.
Softball tryouts start January 9th, and students must be cleared before they can try out. Information about physicals and SportsNet is available in the Athletics Office.
Have a great weekend, Falcons!
