The MANDATORY Parent/Athlete meeting for all high school athletes that plan on playing a sport during the 2014-2015 school year will be Monday, August 4 at 7:00 pm in the gym. Keep in mind that all fall sports will start their practices on Monday, August 4. Since we are not having the meeting until after the first day of fall practices, athletes must make sure they have their completed physicals turned into the high school office before they will be allowed to practice on Monday, August 4. If a physical is not turned in then the athlete will sit and watch until they turn their physical in. The Parent/Athlete meeting will last approximately 45 minutes and immediately following this meeting the fall coaches will have a seperate meeting to go over their expectations. For questions contact Mr. Buthod.

TECHNOLOGY FUNDRAISER: The FundingFactory Recycling Program is a FREE program that allows schools and businesses to collect used electronics and cartridges in exchange for cash (used for technology equipment).

There is a collection box in the Tech office where parents, students, teachers, and businesses may drop off used electronics and cartridges. Businesses may also register with the FundingFactory and select our Organization ID (304697). In doing so, they can receive FREE shipping boxes and labels. When they register with our ID and ship the boxes using the labels they receive, we receive points from the electronics they ship to the FundingFactory.

All shipping costs associated with the returns are FREE. However, businesses (if doing the registration option) must be sure to utilize one of UPS regular shipping and pick-up times to avoid shipping charges.

In the attached qualifying list of products, you can see how many points each item is worth. Our school district’s goal is to earn at least $10,000 or 25000 points. With the help of all school members, patrons, and businesses, we can reach this number.
