Good morning Southeast Students and Staff, today is Friday, May 10th.

And now a moment of silence to start the day!  (WAIT 10 seconds before moving on)


Thank you


“Good morning, this is your Wellness Wakeup Call!”

Have you ever felt tired after lunch? High-fat foods slow down our blood flow by making our blood sludge-like. This slows down the delivery of oxygen to our brains and makes us feel sleepy.

 “Enjoy your day, the healthy way!”


The talent show is tonight!!  The doors will open at 7:00pm.  Talent show tickets are being sold in the commons during A & B lunches.  Tickets are $3.00 if you get them before the show.  They will be $5.00 at the door.  We have several surprise participants this year.  Sydney McCabe an alumnus of southeast will be performing.  The dance group “critical ambition” will be performing a wonderful and entertaining dance routine that you do not want to miss.  This group is a big attraction around the city.  The main attraction is your classmates.  They have so much talent.  Come out and see for yourself tonight at 7:00pm.
