Bulldogs Strive for Success!

Winter Sport Tryouts: Anyone planning on trying out for a sport Monday must be cleared by the athletic trainer today. No one will be cleared Monday, so make sure you go see him. And remember, playing a fall sport does not mean you are cleared for a winter sport.

Congratulations - Congratulations to Ms. Griffith and all the choirs. If you did not attend their “A Night at the Movies” Concert last night, you missed out. Awesome performance and lots of talent!

Debate Club: The Debate Club will be holding a meeting TODAY durng lunch in Mr. Cornelius’ classroom, room 207. Anyone interested is welcomed to attend.

New Student ID cards and pictures have arrived in the office. Please come pick them up during book store hours.

Interact: Interact Members - Please sign up with Ms. Moon to help at the football concession TODAY.

Blood Drive: Safford High School will be hosting its fall blood drive on Wednesday, November 12th in the small gym, If you would like to schedule an appointment, please see Mr. Dorrell in room 206 or a member of student council.

Frolic Reminder: Students Frolic is coming up in November and this is a reminder for the new rules to attend:

Dances (Frolic and Prom):
1. Student who has 5 or more discipline issues (anything from being sent to the office for a timeout, tardy, electronics violations to suspensions) will forfeit their privilege to attend the formal dances during the year. * This is per semester.
Example: 1 tardy, 1 electronics violation, 1 dress code violation, 1 teacher referral, 1 sent to office for a timeout = 5 discipline violations that would not allow you to attend Frolic/Prom.
2. Students must also be academically eligible at the time of dance to be allowed to attend.

Fall Activities/Outdoors Page: This is a reminder for anyone that would like to be in the Fall activities outdoors page to get their picture by sending them to Kourtney Kendall or Kiana Gonzales as soon as possible.
