Spring is here…

 

  1. Spring is here and so is the dress code.  Please remember you may not have shirts that show your midriff or expose any undergarments.  Shorts and skirts need to be the appropriate length.  We do not like to have to enforce the dress code, so please do not break it.  If you have a question about a piece of clothing either ask one of us or just wait and wear it after school. If you break the dress code you will be given something from the Charger Closet to wear.

 

  1. Parking – If you are a new driver you MUST have a parking permit.  We are going to start to get the “boot” out if a car isn’t registered.  Thanks for your cooperation on this.

 

COINS

Do you have a great number of coins just sitting in your room? Maybe even you just have some spare change in your pocket or car. Either way, Key Club has a great way to put those coins to a great use! Key Club will be having a coin drive competition between the grades from May 1st to May 4th during both lunches! All of the money will be going to UNICEF. Come prepared on Tuesday with lots of coins so your grade can win!

 

SADD/SAVE

Did you know that alcohol is involved in 1/3 of all fatal teen car crashes? Every year, high school students plan their perfect prom night, but that all could end in one instant. This Friday SADD/SAVE will be handing out non-alcoholic strawberry daiquiris and have drunk goggles for you to try on during both lunches. We encourage all of you to be safe and have fun at prom!

 

 

Wizard of OZ

Looking for something fun to do next weekend? Tickets for this year’s spring musical The Wizard of Oz will be sold during both lunches every day starting tomorrow. The shows are May 4 @ 7:30 and May 5 @ 2:00 and 7:30. Tickets are $8 for students, seniors, and $10 for adults.

 

Attention all Seniors!

 

Student Leadership is creating a Senior sendoff slideshow for our last assembly on May 18th. If you would like your pictures to be featured, please send them to reedmk@midlandps.org or DM them to the Student Leadership Twitter account. Please make sure these photos are school appropriate or else they will not be accepted.

 

Senior Project

Friday is the eighth annual Senior Project Community Fair in the GREEN GYM. The fair will run 1-6 hour, observing first lunch. Different topics presented each hour — ranging from social media responsibility to music therapy! There will be animals, volunteer opportunities, and swag. Hope to see YOU at the fair.

 

GO GREEN

 

Today, April 27, has been designated as an international FIGHT FOOD WASTE day!

 

In the United States, we throw away a staggering amount of food every day…

263 million pounds to be exact! That’s approximately 400 pounds of food per person, per year!

 

In addition to the food itself, a tremendous amount of resources are wasted when we throw away perfectly good food! Did you know that it takes 18 gallons of water to produce one apple!?

 

Wasted food is also a major contributor to climate change, producing more greenhouse gas emissions than 37 million cars!

 

Chamber Singers

Any student who wants to audition for Chamber Singers but is not currently in choir, please see Mrs. Farison during lunch tomorrow or Friday.
