Please check the lost and found in the guidance office.  There are quite a few lunch bags and jackets and coats.

 

School Traditions will be here today to deliver class rings.  If you have a balance, please have it ready so you can pick up your ring.                                                                                                                                     

A reminder that high school students are not to enter the middle school building unless it is done with permission from the middle school office or with a high school teacher.  Any students riding the transfer bus or loading onto a bus at the middle school is to not enter the middle school building.                                                                              

Just a reminder to all staff and students, the ReBel chapter is hosting a sock drive for the homeless population in our community through December 16.  Drop off boxes are in the Principal’s and health office.                             

 

Attention Current PSEO Students:  Once you have completed your IWCC Fall PSEO class, you should return your textbooks to the IWCC Bookstore. Otherwise, you will be charged for the textbook.  If you have problems when at the IWCC Bookstore, simply ask for Linda; she is the PSEO textbook expert.  This should be done before you begin your Lewis Central Winter Break.                                                                                                                                               

 

All incompletes any student has from Trimester 1 will be turned to a failing grade after today unless you complete and hand in all assignments to your teacher, and your teacher reports to Renee your passing grade.                 


For those students registered to take the ACT  Saturday, please remember that you must bring your printed ACT Admissions Ticket AND an ACT-approved picture ID (see www.actstudent.org if you have questions).  You should also bring at least three #2 pencils, not mechanical pencils, and an ACT-approved calculator you are used to using.

Attention all Tri 1 Advanced Pottery students.  Congratulations on a great show in the Media Center.  The variety and quality of work is outstanding and we thank you for adding to the visual culture of our school.  Your work may now be relocated from our media center to your home this week.  Please take good care of your artwork as you may be asked to display your work at more art shows this year.  Great job artists.                                                

 

Are you going to the SnoBall Dance?  Are you bringing a guest from another school?

It's time to stop by the office and pick up the Visitor Permission Form.  The SnoBall Dance is on Saturday, January 7; only 4 days after we get back from Winter Break.  All Visitor Permission Forms are due back on Tuesday, January 6, or turned in before we leave for Winter Break.                                                                                          

 

Did you know that December is National Human Rights month?  The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states:  "All beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.  They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood."  How are YOU showing dignity and respect to others?  Do you need to do better?  December is a great time to challenge yourself to practice the Golden Rule:  Treat others as you want to be treated.  Make the world a better place each and every day.                                                                 

                                                                                                                                          

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.

 

The  United States Army representative will be in the cafeteria on Tuesday, December 13.

 

The University of Nebraska Omaha will be here at 9:00 on Tuesday, December 13.  UNO is an urban university with over 15,000 students. It has some of the nicest apartment-style dormitories in the Midwest. UNO also offers all LC grads a discount on their out-of-state tuition. They compete in Division I and just opened a new arena for hockey and basketball. Its most popular majors are Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services; education; security and protective services; and biological and biomedical sciences. There are too many LCHS staff to list those with UNO degrees, but they do include Dr. Beyenhof and a teacher or counselor in almost every department. Don't be afraid to ask your teachers and counselors if they have a Maverick connection.
