Announcements, Thursday, 1/17

January 17, 2019

Today is Thursday, January 17th and it is a B Day.

To all students who had class switches:    Please remember to return your textbooks to the teacher of the class you switched out of. It is your responsibility to return your textbooks and any other materials you might have.

Attention Juniors:

P.K. Yonge will select one Student Representative from the Junior class to participate in the 2019 Clay Electric Youth Tour to Washington Contest

One alternate will also be selected in the event that the student representative is unable to attend. The selected student will go on an all-expenses paid trip to Tallahassee for 2 and a half days from Feb. 19-21st.  While in Tallahassee, students will participate in a contest which consists of a written quiz and speech, in addition to touring the state capital and seeing the government in action.  Students will be provided the speech topic and written quiz materials prior to the trip. A panel of judges will determine the four winners based on their combined scores of the written quiz and speech.  Once the contest concludes, students will visit the Senate or House chambers for a mock session, Supreme Court, Governor’s mansion and/or notable museums. At the conclusion of the trip, the four contest winners will then spend an all-expense paid week in Washington, D.C. from June 15-20th.  Interested Juniors should see Mrs. Theiss in Guidance by next Tuesday, Jan 22nd to apply.
