Picture day is here again! Pictures will be taken today Tuesday, October 1 for all new students, any retakes or make ups for current students and staff, and seniors who are unable to visit the Photographic Arts studio by October 11. The photographers will be in the auditorium from 7:30am- 1:15. Students will not be called out of their English class for pictures, so they need to go before school, during lunch or anytime available in between.  Make sure you get down there so you can be included in the 2019-2020 yearbook.

Our October selection for Book Club is Good Omens. Pick up a copy in the library and find out all about The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch. Book club meets on the final Tuesday of each month in the library after school. You do not need to be a member of book club to check out the book and read it! You can read the book and stop by the library any time throughout the month to share your thoughts if you are unable to attend the meeting. All students and staff are welcome!

The Fall Choir Concert is today Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 7pm at the Quad City Music Guild Theatre. The public is invited and admission is free.
