From the Main Office:  Mark your calendars!  Parent Teacher Conferences this year will be on Thursday, November 15.  Conferences will be held from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the Cafeteria.  No appointment is needed.  All parents are encouraged to attend.  When you arrive, you will be asked to sign-in.  With a parent sign-in, parents will receive a wristband to take home for their student(s).  Students, whose parents attend, will earn a dress down day on Monday, November 19 with this wrist band.

Students who would like to volunteer Thursday or Friday next week to help with auction duties should stop in the library and sign up with Mrs. Lienhart.

From Mr. Havlicek: All: Once again, Lumen Christi will be partnering with Sylvan Learning to provide all students with the opportunity to get a practice test in for the ACT standardized test coming up this spring. The workshop will be held January 12th and is open to all students grades 7-11. Students in grade 12 that are in need of a repeat test can certainly join if necessary. Pre-registration is certainly encouraged. The workshop is a great way to receive additional practice for each of the students, and even create a level of comfort with the timing and material that will be on an actual test. Please consider attending and helping your student to get some beneficial guidance to help with future college planning.
