Attention chargers! It’s pre-zza time once again! Remember that pre-zza is pre-ordered pizza that is delivered to your third hour. Place your orders and pay before May 16th to be able to enjoy pizza on Thursday, May 17th. Since it is the senior’s last week, seniors will come first on pizza orders. There are only 25 pizzas available, so contact Chloe Welch to place your order!

Hey Chargers! Have you ever wanted to relieve some stress and support a good cause? Then we have the perfect solution for you. A Dodgeball tournament! June 9th 2018 at Dow High! It’s simple you get to relieve stress, eat pizza, throw balls at teachers, teachers throw balls at your students, and support a greater cause that hits close to Dow High. 200 cases of MS are diagnosed each week in the US  and more than 15,000 are in Michigan alone. Our own Ms. Pancost, and Sydney’s mom, both have MS; let’s ban together and show support for them and everyone else affected by the disease. So grab a group of 5 and all of you bring $2 for a total of $10 and contact Sydney Gardner and Hannah Kempl. Half of the fee will go towards food, the other half will go towards the National MS Society and all donations are welcome. There’s a table everyday at both lunches. Sign up today while spots are available!


Key Club

The seniors’ last day is next Friday! Every day this week, Key Club is selling Hershey’s kisses at both lunches to send to seniors on Thursday, May 17th. Send a bundle of kisses and a note for just $1 and show your appreciation for your favorite seniors before they graduate.




Chargers – Did you forget to order your 2018 yearbook? Well you are in luck! We are going to open up a last chance ordering window for those that want to make sure they have a 50th anniversary book.

This last chance sale will begin on Monday, May 7 and end on Friday May 11. Distribution day will be Thursday, May 17 at 2:25 in the cafeteria. Any remaining books will be sold for $65 while supplies last.
