Students!  Mr. Frascht has added MORE books to the free book shelves.  Come grab a few for  your reading needs.  Remember, if you've got a book, you've got a ticket to a whole new world. The free books are easy to find under the hot pink signs, and free is is price you can't beat.  Head to the library to find a free treasure today!     

All football players 9-12 will check in equipment on Thursday after school. Everything needs to be washed or it will not be accepted.                                                                                                                                           

9th and JV Volleyball girls who weren’t at the banquet, stop by the office to pick up your certificate and picture.

Don’t worry, you won’t be alone in front of a huge group of people! And if you aren’t sure what speech is all about but think it might be the activity for you, come after school to check it out!                                                                                                                                                    

School Traditions last order day at school will be Tuesday November 27th.                                                                                                                      

Attention Students:

As we are nearing 2nd trimester, this is a reminder that schedule changes will only be made if there is something wrong with your schedule.  Please do not ask your counselor to move classes around, change teachers, or change classes if you have the classes you requested at registration time.                                                                            

The deadline for ordering and paying for AP exams has been extended until Wednesday, Nov. 14th.  Students need to register through myap.collegeboard.org and then fees will be added to student Power school accounts.  Students may pay through Efunds or the high school main office. Contact Lorraine Duitsman (AP Coordinator) for questions at lduitsman@lewiscentral.org.                                                                                                                                                                     

The following colleges will have representatives in our School Counseling office.  If you want to meet with a college representative, simply email Renee at rkybat@lewiscentral.org, and she will send a pass for you when the representative arrives.

During lunch times, the United States Marine Corps will be set up by the cafeteria the second and fourth Tuesday of every month.  The United States Navy will be there the third Monday of every month.  The Iowa National Guard will also be set up on the first and third Thursday of each month, and the United States Army will be set up on the second and fourth Thursday of each month.   If you are considering a military career, please be sure to stop by and introduce yourself to these recruiters.

Seniors, the following scholarship was just added to the list of scholarships on our School Counseling Scholarship List webpage:

 

Iowa's only Nobel Peace Prize recipient was once an Iowa high school student, and he became a scientist whose discoveries saved over a billion lives.  In his honor, The World Food Prize Youth Institute offers a chance for high school students to research food insecurity in a developing country and submit a paper for consideration.  Selected students will receive a $500 scholarship to Iowa State University's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences as well as attend a conference to present their work to Iowa State faculty and non-profit organizations.  Please send Mrs. Kavars an email or stop by her office in the math pod for more information on participating.
