Recent and Upcoming Events and Deadlines

The winner of the Visual Arts Contest in celebration of Hispanic Heritage month is 11th grader, Elma Hajric who submitted her painting of Selena Quintinalla. Huge congratulations! You can see her artwork outside of the cafeteria.

Speaking of the cafeteria, the lunch rule has been changed so students can now get two lunch servings for free compared to the previous rule that only allowed for one. Any additional lunches will have to be paid for.


Job for a Day is coming up this year for monday November 8th and tuesday November 9th. 11th and 12th graders have the option to shadow local (usually) businesses in order to experience what it is like at a job in each student’s area of interest. They have a wide range of options in different career clusters and different types of organizations. It is 50-90 minutes for virtual events and up to 3 hours for in-person events. This is a great opportunity to hear from real members in the workforce and to get an intro to what it’s like to actually work. Students can preview the list October 18-22 and can sign up from the 25th to the 29th. Make sure to register as early as possible, as space is limited.


The Seal of Biliteracy is coming up quickly: the deadline to pay the fee ($15) and fill out the form is October 28th, and the test will take place at 9:15 on November 9th. Another option for language testing is the Credit Through Testing, which allows students to receive class credit for a language that they can speak (and write) and haven’t taken in high school. The deadline to register is also the 28th, and the test will take place November 8th from 4:30-6:30. There is no fee to take the test.
