Freshmen, remember that you have a free dress down day on Monday.  This is sweat pants or athletic shorts of the appropriate length only.  Pajama pants and leggings are NOT, and never have been, allowed!  If you have questions, see Mrs. Hennig or ask in the school office BEFORE you wear something for which you may receive a dress code violation.

There has been a change in Lunch Options for next week.  On Monday, Mr. Schorfheide will be serving Mac ‘N Cheese, green beans, fruit, brownies, and lemonade for $5 with profits going to Dallas Lutheran High School’s tornado relief fund; then on Tuesday, he will be serving his regular weekly lunch of Nachos/Tacos with toppings and dessert for $4.

Come to the Basketball game tonight to support our boys’ teams, as well as our students travelling to Washington, D.C.  Remember to come decked out in “Deck the Halls” Christmas wear.  Let’s have fun while supporting our fellow students!

PLEASE check out the items on the window bench.  At 3:10pm TODAY, everything left will be boxed up for donation.

Finally, we decided to make a separate Christmas Sweater category for the faculty and staff.  With that said, the winner of the Ugliest Faculty/Staff Christmas Sweater is Mr. Zander, with an honorable mention to Coach McCulley, AND…the winner of the Ugliest Student Christmas Sweater goes to Alex S.  Congratulations to all of our participants as true to the spirit of the contest, you all looked ugly!!!
