Clue Night Attention students! Clue tickets are now on sale all this week before and after school in the lobby, as well as during lunch in The Commons. Tickets cost $5 a person, and students can sign up in pairs of two or alone. Clue is a National Honor Society fundraiser where students work together to solve the mystery to find out which teacher “killed” Signature School principal Jean Hitchcock. In teams, students travel to different classrooms in search of clues that will reveal the weapon, location, and suspect(s). Before the work begins, students will bond through pizza in The Commons. The event is from 5:30 to 8:30 PM on Friday, January 24. No tickets will be sold at the door.


 

Attention Instrumental Music Students: The University of Evansville music department has invited all area high school students to participate in the Aces Instrumental Music Fest this Sunday afternoon, January 19th, on the UE campus. There will be opportunities to work with the UE music faculty, the ISSMA music coaching session, and participate in the student recital/competition. Students can compete for cash awards & UE scholarships. You can get more info by contacting the UE music department.


 

Model UN If you plan on going on the Model UN trip, you need to get your permission slip ASAP.

Sophomores! Sophomores, it's time to dream about your junior and senior course schedule! But to dream realistically, you'll need concrete facts and paper forms. We have scheduled enrollment meetings for you on Friday, January 17 as follows: All sophomores in 5th period Health, PE, and Silent Study should report immediately to KC 207 at 8:30. All sophomores in 7th period Health, Ethnic Studies, Piano Lab, Silent Study, and Fine Arts Connections should also report to KC 207 at the start of the period. All other sophomores may come to one of three enrollment information sessions in KC 207: before school (7:30-8:15) OR lunch (11:30-12), OR after school (3:15-4). Not sure where you stand? There is a list with your name on it posted at the whiteboard in the main lobby. Your teachers also have hard copies of this list.
