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.  

A reminder that you must send an email to shrekshs20@gmail.com to officially accept your casting, this is mandatory and your casting is not official until you do this. If an email is not received by end of today it will be assumed that you do not accept your role.

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.

There will be a football meeting for all people interested in trying out for football in 2020. The meeting will be in the cafeteria at 3:20 today and should last until 4:00. Any questions see Coach Gully, Coach Graham or Coach Hebb.

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.
