9th, 10th & 11th Graders: Connect with Tech on Jan 25, 5-7 pm

On Wednesday, January 25, 2017, freshman, sophomores, and juniors (and their parents) are invited to attend Connect with Tech night at the CTC.

Classrooms and labs will be open from 5-7 pm. Instructors and current students will be on-site to answer questions, and do demonstrations. Hands-on activities will be taking place throughout the building, and local manufacturers will be on display in the Pride Conference room to answer questions and share the perks of careers in Manufacturing. Join us! This is a great chance to see all of the programs that interest you and to show your parents what a great opportunity this is for you.

SHOWCASE 2017:  Auditions for SHOWCASE will be held on January 30th after school in the Band Room. Start preparing your awesome performances! Holton can send a group (3 or more performers) and a solo act (1 or 2 performers) to the performance at the Frauenthal. Mrs. Olson can answer questions. Sign up to audition on the CALL BOARD (outside the Band Room).

BILLBOARD  and POSTER CONTEST:                                                                                                                   The Muskegon Alcohol Liability Initiative is sponsoring a billboard and poster contest. Middle School students, create a poster highlighting the risks of underage drinking and you could win a pizza party for the class of your choosing. High School students, design a billboard addressing the risks of underage drinking and your design could be turned into an actual billboard in Muskegon County. Additionally, you could win a pizza and movie party at the Cinema Carousel with ten friends of your choosing. See Mrs. Olson for contest rules and details.

FYI: A copy of 2nd semester schedules will be given to Prides sometime next week, so everyone knows where they are going when the new semester starts on Jan 30th. Schedule changes are not going to happen without an extreme reason (like an error or omission in your schedule). If you think a change needs to happen, you need to talk to your Pride teacher. Your Pride teacher will determine if a schedule change is warranted.

FREE TUTORING: Free Tutoring is available through Safe Harbor's Community Outreach Service: at 851 W. Laketon in Muskegon (their entrance door faces Crowley St).

SENIORS: The Community Foundation for Muskegon County has over 205 scholarship funds available. Awards range from $500 to $25,000, and completing ONE general application online automatically puts you in the running for any of them you may qualify for.

Many of the awards reflect the interests and values of the donors who created them, so they’re not limited to top students or based on financial need. There may be awards for the school you’re planning to attend (including MCC, Baker, or vocational schools), for an extra-curricular activity you’ve been in, for elements of character you’ve exhibited, or the field of study you’re interested in.

BONUS: After you submit your completed scholarship application, you will receive a personalized draft resume using the information you submitted.

Apply online between by March 1 at www.cffmc.org/scholarships. Contact Dana Scott at 231-332-4104 or dscott@cffmc.org if you have any questions.

ATTENTION STUDENTS: We are having an issue with getting to class on time for first hour. Staff will be extra diligent in enforcing the tardy policy to help support you in getting class on time. There are three bells to help remind you, by the 3rd bell you should be IN class. Thank you for getting to class on time!

STUDENTS:  Students that are arriving early before 7:30 am., need to wait in the cafeteria until 7:30 am., before entering the hallways.
