Good morning, today is, January 15, and it is an A day.
Library will be closed during lunch due to the Spelling Bee.
Activity pictures will be taken on Friday, January 18. Students have been made aware of which activities/groups will be photographed. Students have the option of getting individual pictures taken during that time. Order forms are available on the activity table in the main hallway. Payment must accompany the picture order form. Students will need an order form each activity needed to be photographed (for example, a student ordering pictures for their involvement in volleyball and girls basketball will need an order form for volleyball and one for girls basketball. However, payment for both can be placed in one order form and a note in the other indicating that information. Please contact Mr. Hampsey with questions.
Guidelines for Appropriate Behavior BB City Tournament January 17-19, 2013
Students, please remember that the Boy’s Basketball City Tournament this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at the Prairie Capital Convention Center is a school function and all behavior guidelines will be enforced at all times during the City Tournament. Any inappropriate behavior displayed at the City Tournament will result in consequences that will be enforced by the administration of all District 186 schools. This includes behavior inside the Convention Center, as well as adjacent to the facility.
In addition, we want to remind everyone that students are expected to wear clothing that does not include lewd, obscene, or vulgar language or representation of anything illegal. Large chains or wallet chains are not allowed. Caps may be worn, but the bill must remain facing forward.
No seating will be allowed in the balcony. Therefore, no spectators are allowed in the balcony area.
Please remember that the Springfield Police Department will be wanding all spectators as they enter the Convention Center.
Students are prohibited from standing on the seats at any and all times. Students may be asked to leave the premises if they indicate an unwillingness to cooperate with security personnel. Anyone asked to leave may not return to any future games this weekend.
The second game will conclude at approximately 9:15 p.m. Please make sure your ride, if needed, will pick you up at that time.
Most importantly, we hope you and your friends have fun and enjoy the City Tournament this weekend. The Tournament should prove to be very exciting, safe, and enjoyable for fans of all ages!
Track will be starting at the end of February. Interested students should make sure that they have an updated physical on file with the school and Mr. Hampsey.
