The SHS Book Fair is coming!!! The Book Fair will open for Parent/Teacher Conference Night, Oct. 24 and will run until Friday, Nov. 1. Stop by the library and check it out.

Come join LIt Club's first meeting of the year, this Wednesday! We'll meet in room 406 at 3:30. Cast your votes to decide what book we'll be reading for the month.

Tonight is Senior Night for the following volleyball players: Sarah Sapanski, Joelle Newman, Maddie Oh and Meg Shudowitz. Come out to the last home game and honor our seniors.

Senators, the girls swimming and City championships are tonight at Eisenhower pool - 7pm! Come and "black out" the pool and cheer our girls on to their third City title. This meet will be the most contested City contest in three years - so come out and show some love for the swim girls!!!

FOREIGNER IS COMING TO TOWN!!!! WNNS is having a contest where one central Illinois high school choir has the chance to sing onstage with the legendary rock band Foreigner, November 15th at Sangamon Auditorium. Our very own 7 & Senators are representing Springfield High School’s choir department and competing for this once in a lifetime opportunity. How can you help? All you have to do is go to the www.wnns.com homepage and vote for the 7 & Senators. You can also check out their video of the choir singing their own rendition of the Foreigner classic “I’ve Been Waiting for a Girl Like You.” Voting started yesterday and ends Friday, the 25th, at midnight. Not only would winning bring a grand opportunity for these kids, but a $500 donation would be presented to the school’s choir department, which would be greatly appreciated. Spread the word and get those votes!! Thanks for your support!!!

Attention girl basketball players not involved in a fall sport: there will be an informational meeting regarding tryouts on Monday Oct. 28th after school in room #264. Any questions, see Coach Scheffler.

Congratulations to Springfield High’s Scholastic Bowl team on being ranked in the top 50 in the Nation! WOW!
