Attention all Springfield High School students who are currently a Freshman, Sophomore, or Junior.  There is a trip planned to Europe in the summer of 2019 for 14 days.  We will visit the countries of Germany, France, and Spain.  Due to an overwhelming response to this trip, we have filled up one bus and have decided to try and open up another bus due to the interest in this trip.  There are currently 7 people signed up on a waiting list to get on the next bus, and there are only 12 spots remaining to students on a first come first serve basis.  Don’t miss the bus on this great opportunity, because they will go fast.  If you are interested, please see Mr. Telger in room 312 for information about the trip.

All city choir kids will be rehearsing in the auditorium this morning. Please bring your music and be there after 1st hour. You will eat B lunch after rehearsal. 

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.
