Brrrrr! Baby, It's Cold Outside! If you drive to school but have to park so far away your toes are frozen when you get here then you need to buy a chance to win one of the 2 choice BAS spots available for 2nd semester for licensed drivers who have a car and insurance. Chances are $1 and will be sold by Ms. Greco during both A lunch outside room 103 and B lunch in the cafeteria. Winners will get to park in the spot for the rest of the semester and will be notified on Friday. If the winner currently has an SHS spot, that spot may not be transferred to another student.

Any girl not in a winter sport that is interested in playing softball, there will be an informational meeting today after school in room 116. See Mr Koger with any questions.
