If you’d like to participate in the 2019 Women’s Leadership Essay Contest, any student can write a 500 word essay about who inspires you and turn it in before December 1st. See Leardi for details!

The next blood drive is November 26th. See Mr. Covey in room 510 to signup to donate.  You must be at least 16 and weigh at least 110 pounds to donate.  9.5 million Americans donate blood each year.  An adult has approximately 10-12 pints of blood.  About 1 in 7 people entering the hospital need blood.  The blood center can produce up to 4 lifesaving products from 1 pint of whole blood.  More than 40,000 pints of donated blood are used each day in the US and Canada.  Cancer is the number one use of blood and blood products at 19%.  38% of the population is eligible to give blood, but less than 10% actually donate.  The US Food and Drug Administration regulates the blood supply and mandates that blood donors not be paid or receive any item “readily convertible to cash” in return for their donations. Only voluntary donations can be used for transfusion.

The Lady Senator basketball team started the year on the wrong end of a 64 to 39 loss. Leading SHS was Kenzey Decker with 14 points and Sarah Byrd with 12. SHS will travel to Galesburg on Saturday for two games.

Please come out and get your first look at the boys basketball team tomorrow night. They will be having their Black and Red Scrimmage game starting around 6:30. Would be great to have student body and staff support.

Both Varsity and JV scholastic bowl senators won their  matches last night against Jacksonville, Lanphier and Rochester.

Mr. Havener would like to remind all students that food and drinks are absolutely NOT allowed in the library, and students MUST have a pass to enter the library during lunch.

Students - Don’t forget the SIU mobile medical clinic is here at SHS every Tuesday.  If you need a physical for sports, or you are having any medical issues that you would like to see a doctor about, please see Nurse Kim any day of the week in room 167, and she will be happy to assist you with an appointment.

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.
