Morning Announcements for Thursday, April 10, 2014

April 10, 2014

Good morning Springfield High! Today is Thursday, April 10, 2014 where
successful Senators are focused, alert, on task, and engaged in the
classroom. Thank you for Being A Senator!

Juniors and any seniors that have not taken the PSAE. U.S. History
teachers will
let you know which room you are to report to Friday for PSAE
instead of going to 6th period. If you do not have U.S. History, or you
remember, check the list posted in the stairwells and the commons

SENIORS: Stop by Mrs. Povse's table at the front of the Commons during
lunch today and indicate what school you have chosen to attend in the fall
or what branch of the military you're headed to or what job you will have.

Illini Club $750 scholarship on the database. Write an essay of 200 or
fewer words on the topic, "Why U of I?"

The Western Illinois University bus trip has been re-scheduled for May 7.
A few additional seats are available for this trip. See Mrs. Povse in 153A
for a permission slip. Students who previously signed up are good to go.

SENIORS: If you plan to attend Lincoln Land Community College in the fall
it is suggested that during spring break you go out to LLCC to take your
placement test and meet with an academic advisor. Before doing this you
should fill out the admissions worksheet online at LLCC.edu If you have
any questions or concerns see Mrs. Povse in 153A before break.

If you would like to help build Habitat House #94 during spring break,
please complete the volunteer registration profile and sign-up for work
hours at habitatsangamon.com. The build begins Saturday, April 12 and runs
thru the end of July. The address is 727 N. 7th Street.

Attention German Club! If you could not attend the last German Club
meeting, but
would still like to go on the trip to Six Flags on April 27, see Herrn
Koeppel in
room 250 to pick up the parent-permission form. You need to turn in that form
together with $20 before the trip. But act fast because only the first 50
get to go

The senior class will be selling breadsticks on both lunch shifts Today.
However, due to an increase in cost, they will be sold at a price of
$2.50. This price will still get you a 3-pack of breadsticks and sauce.

Seniors: On April 23 & 24th, we will be testing all freshmen, sophomores,
& juniors. During those two days, you have the opportunity to choose one
of 3 Senior Day Activities: College Visits, Job Shadowing, or Community
Service. Permission forms may be picked up in the main office, guidance
office, or room 169. The forms must be signed by a parent or guardian and
turned in to room 169 NO LATER than April 22nd. You must also provide
verification that you were in attendance on those days from the college,
employer, or organization and turn that in no later than May 2nd to room
169. In order to have your absences on these days to be considered an
"Activity" and not count against you for Exam Exemptions, you MUST have
the signed permission form turned in no later than April 22nd and the
verification papers turned in to room 169 no later than May 2nd. If you
do not want to participate in one of these activities, your
parent/guardian may call you in to receive an Excused Absence for those
days. However, these absences will count towards the absences for the
Exam Exemption. If no permission slips are received and no calls are
received, the absences will be considered unexcused. If you have any
questions, please see Ms. Greco.

The boys track and field team competed in a meet against Chatham Glenwood and
Taylorville on Wednesday night. No team scores were taken. Event Champions
were: Nick Farley in the 100 and 200; Michael Neposchlan in the 3200;
Tanner Coleclasure in the 300 hurdles; and the 4x100 relay team of Tanner
Coleclasure, Nick Farley, Tony Williams, and Vernon Halloway. The boys
next compete at Lanphier on Saturday against Lanphier, Danville, and
Peoria Manual.

Congratulations to the members of the 2014 Prom Court!

Court members must get their packets from Mrs. Taft’s room (354) before
spring break.

Would you please now rise for the Pledge of Allegiance!
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America.
And to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God,
Indivisible with liberty and justice for all
