STUDENT BULLETIN:

REGISTRATION: Attention 9th – 11th Graders – If you did not go through the registration process this week, please remember to bring your packet to Mrs. King as soon as possible. 

FINE LIST: Hello Sultan Scholars!  Just a follow-up reminder to come check the fine list in the library to get your account cleared before the end of the year.  Any remaining fines in your account will carry over to next year.  Seniors – at last count, almost 1/3 of you still have fines.  So, here are a couple of incentives to take care of clearing your fines.  First, you will not be able to purchase your prom bid if you have a fine.  Second, you will not be cleared for graduation if you have a fine.  As always, if you have questions, please come see Mrs. Teschler in the library.

GOT DRUMS? Okay, you know what you want to do.  You know you’re dying to try it out.  The anticipation is almost too much.  What is it you want to do?  Why it’s obvious, add Drum class to your schedule for next year.  There is still time to become a part of this ground-breaking class.  We are going to be exploring all manner of beating on things.  Trash cans, buckets, drums, brake drums, cymbals, tables, and the old stand by…the teacher, Mr. Stalmann!  We need 7 more students to sign up for this class and we can open a whole new world to you.  Plans also include exploring using your iPhones to make music, so don’t miss out, don’t be shy, be bold, and take a step into a new world.

SULTAN LINK CREW 2014-2015: Please fill out the Google docs survey on Mrs. Yaeger’s website today.  You will not get a t-shirt if you don’t do this ASAP.

SENIOR PROM: Attention Senior Class – Prom is around the corner.  The theme this year is ‘Bright Lights, Big City’ held downtown at the Bristol Hotel.  Tickets will be on sale starting Monday.  For a couple tickets will be $90 without and ASB card and $80 with an ASB card.  For an individual a ticket will be $60 without an ASB card and $50 with an ASB card.  They are available at the finance office and will be sold through June 4th, so hurry and pick yours up soon.

RECYCLE: You have probably noticed the large, blue recycling containers around campus.  Please recycle your cans and bottles.  Funds earned will help the Clean Water Club provide water filters to families in Fiji who do not have clean, safe water to drink.  You will be helping our environment, and helping people to be free of sickness and disease.  It’s worth taking the few extra steps to the recycling bin.  And, if you would like to help with our efforts or know more about the Clean Water Club, join us on Fridays at lunch in room S8.

STAND UP TO BULLYING:  A new group is being organized and students participating in this group will learn strategies for standing up to bullying and different ways to make the situation better and to become empowered.  This group is part of an action research study being completed by Ms. Crandall as part of her Master’s program in School Counseling at USD.  Participation in the group is voluntary and students can join the group based on interest.  All students are free to end their participation in the group at any time, with no negative consequences if they no longer wish to participate.  For more information, please see Ms. Crandall in the counseling office.

WORK PERMITS: If you are currently employed you MUST have a valid work permit on file. If you are under 18 years of age and working without a work permit both you and your employer are breaking the law! Please stop by and see Ms. Bingham in the front office to pick up a work permit application.

SPORTS CLUB: Love sports?  Join us every Wednesday at lunch for Sports Club.  Look for the sign in front of the gym entrance for the weekly sport.

PARKING STICKER: If you drive your car to school, you must obtain a parking sticker from Mrs. King.  Pick up a green application in her office, fill it out, have your parent sign it, and bring it back to her and she will give you a parking sticker.  Campus Supervisors will be issuing citations if there is not a sticker on your vehicle.

PEER SUPPORT: Attention students – Are you in conflict with someone on campus?  Do you need to resolve an issue with someone else?  Maybe you just need someone to talk to?  Have you witnessed others around you drinking, smoking, bullying, and cheating on tests?  Peer supporters have been trained to help you through those difficult times and teach you how to step up and stand up for what’s right.  Peer supporters can also help you and your friend in conflict resolve your issues and find peace again.  If you are in need of any help, stop by the guidance office and fill out a peer supporter referral form.  Peer supporters are here to help you everyday.
