Good morning Springfield High! Today is Friday, February 16, 2018.

Celebrating "From Selma to Montgomery:  The Long Walk to Freedom" is the theme of this year's African American History Month of Celebrations.  The program will be held on February 23rd in the auditorium.

Also, all students are invited to participate in the essay, poster and trivia contests.  The trivia contest will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays in February.  All answers should be taken to Ms. Mosley’s class, room 368.  Students should see essay and poster contests requirements posted in the halls.

The rules for BHM Trivia are as follows:
1. The game is not predicated on who turns in their answer first as we have some students coming up from the 1st floor to the 3rd.
2. Your class receives 1 point per correct answer unless otherwise stated in the question.
3. We will tally the points and determine if a tie-breaker is necessary (last year both winning teams received a party…with FOOD!) 
4. Have fun and learn something new to share with others!

Attention Juniors: The Board of Education invites interested current high school juniors to apply to become the 2018-2019 Student School Board Member.

Best of luck and safe travels to the IN Session showchoir who will travel to Naperville North High School to compete in the 3rd annual "Clash of the Sequin" showchoir Invitational. They will be competing at 9am in the small group division. Also best of luck to seniors Emma Bachman and Nicole Solomon as they will represent the showchoir and Springfield High school in the solo competition there at Naperville North High School. Last year IN Session competed at the Clash, coming home with 1st Runner up and Best Choreography and Best Performer (DJ Simmons) in the small group division, coming up 2 points short from making finals and 1 point from winning Best Combo (band) award. Looking forward to bringing home some more hardware this weekend. Go get 'em IN Session!

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.
