Thumbs up if you voted!
Today’s student council held a mock election. Mr. Clark helped us set up an electoral college system which each study hall had a set number of votes depending on its population. President Trump carried nine study halls while Vice-President Biden won in two rooms. Thank you to Mr. Clark and to everyone who voted!

Today we got the last section of our lumber storage shelves built, making the new storage room complete. There were a lot of Industrial Arts students that had a hand in building them, and their help is greatly appreciated! The new storage cabinets also look great and have allowed us to get everything organized. It’s very exciting to see it all come together!

It has taken some doing and creative movement with the COVID restrictions, but we are finally cooking in Nutrition class! Sadly, the students have to wait until they get home to eat anything. The word coming back to me is that everything is delicious!

Today, this student was able to finish up his project from last spring after our semester was cut short. I’m so glad we’ve been able to get back in the shop to get it done. Nice work!

Mark your calendar for this year's Halloween Movie Double Feature! It will take place Friday 10/30 at 7:00 PM. We're planning to project our movies onto the shed behind the school this year, so dress warmly and bring a lawnchair (and maybe a pile of blankets!). There is no cost for this event. Student council will be choosing the movies tomorrow, and we will announce them next week. Since we must limit our event to 50 students, we do ask that you sign up in the office to receive a ticket.
