Ugly sweater day is Friday! Prizes for students and staff - wear your sweater and show off your ugly holiday pride!!!

Are you thinking of a career in Veterinary Medicine? If so, Brewer Animal Hospital is hiring. Please see Mrs. Devlin for more information.

Seven SHS students will be performing in Springfield Ballet Company's upcoming performance of The Nutcracker at the UIS Performing Arts Center.  This is our 45th annual production of The Nutcracker, a grand holiday tradition featuring colorful costumes, exquisite dancing, and beautiful music.  The production features a cast of 141, including Company dancers, local actors, young dancers from the community and professional guest artists.  Shows are at 2 pm and 7 pm on Saturday and again at 2 pm on Sunday.

Students don’t forget to check with your teacher to see if you owe any lab fees.  If you do please make the payments in the main office before or after school only.

Attention Juniors: Applications for next year’s Sangamon County CEO program are now open. Go to www.sangamonceo.com to apply. Any questions, see Mrs. Lauer in guidance, deadline for applications is April 15th! 

SHS is having a penny war! Another competition between the classes.  Listen up! People are going to walk around the commons and cafeteria with buckets - one for 9th grade, one for 10th, one for 11th and one for 12th.  To score points for your grade, you need to bring as many pennies as possible to put in your grade’s bucket.  And then you also want to bring silver change and paper bills so that you can sabotage another grade.  So say I’m a senior and and I want to sabotage the freshmen, so I’m going to put a dollar bill into the freshmen bucket. This dollar bill will cancel out 100 pennies in the freshmen bucket and subtract away from their score.  So a nickel or a dime or a quarter or even a $10 bill can take away from the freshmen score.  So bring your pennies and other change to see who the best class in the school is! There’s going to be a prize.  All money collected goes to charity.

GSA will be decorating holiday cookies tomorrow after school in Mrs. Eaton’s room. All are welcome.

City t-shirt order forms are coming soon, keep listening to the announcements for where and when to get them when they’re ready. The prices are $25 for all 3 shirts, or $5 for the red shirt only.

Be A Senator "Kudos Kards" are available in the guidance office! It is a way for you to show appreciation and gratitude to someone the building. Please stop by the guidance office for one!

After school tutoring in room 160 will be available Monday, 12/16 and Tuesday, 12/17. There will NOT be tutoring on Thursday, 12/19.

SHS boys took on Bloomington HS in a dual meet yesterday.  Dae-Cheon Pippin swam a best time in the 100 free in 59.76, breaking the 1 minute barrier for the first time.   Sophomore Xavier Moreno took 5 seconds off his 100 free, swimming 1:09.76.  Sophomore Cort Sommer valiantly swam two pairs of back to back races, and dropped time in his 500 free along the way!  and Lleyton Power finished the 100 breast and swam the first leg of the 400 free relay - another exceptional effort! Newcomer Conrad Martin swam the 200 free, an exhausting swim if you’ve never done it, but he did well! Newcomers Isaac Vizral and Diego Llosa showed how far they’ve come in their 50 and 100 frees.

Hey hey hey JSA! There will be a meeting in Mr. Hebb’s room after school tomorrow.

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.
