Good morning, Falcons! One more day until finals!
Congratulations to the biggest “winners” and “losers” in Dime Wars - with the most negative points, the biggest “loser” is Ms. Herrera! The runner-up for most positive points is Mrs. Trent. And, our top winner (most positive points) is Mr. Schilhabel! Mr. Schilhabel’s 2nd period will be enjoying either pizza or donuts tomorrow, while Ms. Herrera, Mrs. Trent, and Mrs. Malson (for the door contest) will all be enjoying donuts for their class prizes!
Aside from the winners and losers, IHS students and staff deserve a huge pat on the back for working so hard to gather money for the Ronald McDonald House! In just 2 weeks, we collected nearly $1,000 to donate to sick children in Bakersfield.
For the Adopt-A-Star program, we’re making the holidays brighter for dozens of children at Castle and Suburu elementary schools! Has your heart grown 3 sizes yet?
There will be no after school tutoring or tutoring bus during finals. The last day of tutoring for fall semester is today. Tutoring will resume after winter vacation on Tuesday, January 10th.
Formal tickets are on sale this week for $55. You can purchase your tickets before school and during lunch this week. Also, the finance office will be open for 1 hour after school on Wednesday and Thursday. 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 by TODAY!
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 Tuesday, Falcons!
