Seniors:  If you are going to continue to let your parking area be a free-for-all, I will help you out by opening it up to underclassmen.  I know you can't see the lines very well, but until I get them painted on Community Service Day, it is up to you to do a better job or you will lose the privilege.  Faded line is no excuse for the problems I've seen and heard about recently.  Regardless of who is in your spot or what is going on out there, you may not use visitor parking areas.  Talk to Mr. Vos if you have any questions about this.

All girls basketball players:  Please pay $2 to Kasiah for senior gifts.

Seniors: Please remember to turn in your completed senior spotlight questionnaire and picture to the Hometown Press as soon as possible. If you have questions or need a new questionnaire, please contact Jessica Maston at jessicamaston@netins.net.
