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 TODAY to apply.


Tickets will be sold TODAY during High School and Middle School Lunch for students who would like to attend the In-School Girls Basketball Game on Friday January 25th against Hawthorne at 1:30 in the gym. We need everyone to come out and show your support for the Girls Basketball Team. Tickets are $4.00. There will be raffles with purchased tickets during the game and great concessions!
