Here are our announcements for the week:

  • This Friday will be our first $3 Denim Day! Students can purchase a wristband for $3 that will allow them to wear jeans and/or shoes of their choice. Here are the rules for $3 Denim Day:

                 1. Jeans cannot have holes in them. Skinny/tight jeans are also not allowed.

                 2. Shoes must still be closed-toed, closed-heel. This means, no flip flops or sandals.

                 3. Polos or Oxfords must still be worn.

                 4. Students must have a wristband on if they wish to participate. Those who do not have on a wristband will be asked to change back into dress code.

               We will be selling wristbands after school on Thursday and before school on Friday. Make sure you buy your wristband early as we will stop selling them at 7:58am on Friday. The money             raised from this fundraiser will go toward lowering the cost of tickets for Feast and Ball at the end of the year. If you have any questions, please see Mr. Seminario!

  • Attention all Juniors and Seniors! Southern Virginia University will be hosting an Open House this Thursday October 4th from 7-8 pm at the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point. You can hear information about the University from alumni and the University President. 
  • Language Club will meet Thursday in room #145 at 3:00pm. Please join us!
  • Tunes at Noon jams together under the stairs this Friday! Starting this Wednesday, in Mr. Fife's room, all you local musicians are invited to a "slow jam" session!
  • An ACT Math Prep will be held every Tuesday and Thursday after school in Mrs. Divis' room #203. All students who are interested in improving their ACT math scores are invited!
  • There will be no intramural basketball today. The double elimination tournament begins this Wednesday. If you did not receive a schedule, please see Miss Call.
  • The Dutch Oven Cook-Off is this Friday (that is, if we have 10 teams ready to compete)! If you haven't turned in your registration forms, ingredients for your recipes, or your $5 fee, please do it today! Currently, we do not have enough teams to continue with this activity, so if you want to participate, please get ready! IF the Cook-Off happens, an all-you-can-eat lunch will be available for $5 per student during lunch outside on Friday.
  • Mark your calendars! Next Tuesday is Picture Retakes! If you did not get your picture taken last month or if you would like to have your picture retaken, then please be prepared to have your picture taken that day.
  • The Cardio Fitness class will be running a 5K during 1st period (8:00-9:10am) on Thursday October 11th. In order to make this happen, Miss Call needs a few parents to help by standing on corners and directing the runners along the course. Parents are also welcome to run with us. If you are interested in helping, please contact Miss Call ( as soon as possible. This is a great opportunity to get some of those volunteer hours in!

Have a great day!
