Good morning! Today is Friday, September 18th.

The All-Girl High School Robotics Team, The Mechanical Mermaids, is now Accepting Applications for the 2020-2021 FIRST Technical Challenge competition season. If you’d like to apply and interview for a potential position on the team in design, graphics, engineering, computer-aided design, marketing, business, technical robot building and programming, or other leadership opportunities, please contact the Coach – Leigh Anne Brewster at or by calling 352-392-1554 extension 245 and leaving a voice message.  Please note that due to team size regulations, the number of open positions on the team is limited. Applications will be accepted through September 18th.

Senior credit checks are happening now, and you are required to meet with your counselor to make sure you are on track to graduate and to discuss post-secondary plans. Again, see the High School Counseling page announcements to get more information and sign up for a meeting.  Contact Mr. Chambliss or Mrs. Theiss if you have questions.

Student drivers:  Parking spaces that have  been painted belong to Seniors.  Do not park in those spaces.  If a decorated space is empty after 8 AM, it is up for grabs, but otherwise it is designated to the Senior who reserved it.  If you have any questions, please reach out to Mrs. Koppitch or Dr. Geiger.

Care about climate change and want to do something about it? Join the newly-formed Climate Action Club! We will design and carry out projects to help reduce our individual and school’s emissions, educate ourselves and others about global climate change, and provide a safe space to talk about climate emotions. The Climate Action Club will meet on Monday, September 21st at 2:40 in Ms. Davis’s Zoom room. This club is open to all high schoolers and we’d love for you to come! Please visit our club page to sign up and receive the Zoom link and Remind code.

Please stand for the pledge: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Have a great day and weekend, Blue Wave!
