Thank you everyone for taking time to cast your vote for Marshall High School at Celebrate my Drive, now we just have to wait and see if we were in the Top 50, we won’t know for a few weeks! The last time we were able to check the leaderboard we were 49, but I’m sure the other schools were doing the same thing we were – doing a last minute drive to win!
Senior parents, the seniors had a class meeting recently regarding caps and gowns and graduation announcements. Please ask your senior about the packet they received, if you haven’t seen this packet, there are extra packets in Mrs. Stepp’s office. On Thursday, October 30th Herff Jones will be located in the Auditorium lobby to take all orders for the graduation announcements and their cap and gowns for graduation. A $75.00 deposit is required with their order for announcements. The cap and gown is paid for from their class treasurer.
Kellogg Community College Night will be on Monday, November 3rd at McCamly Plaza Hotel in Battle Creek from 6:30-8:00pm. If you are undecided about colleges, this would be a great time to visit with representatives from a number of area colleges in Michigan. This presentation is open to all students as well as parents/guardians.
The guidance Office is requesting that all college applications be turned in for processing no later than Friday, November 7th. Please have your son/daughter see their counselor with any questions.
The fall play will be Moon Over Buffalo. The play shows the backstage shenanigans that ensue when husband and wife team George and Charlotte Hays find out that Frank Capra is coming to see their matinee performance and to offer them roles in his upcoming film. Hilarity ensues with mistaken identities, switched performance titles, and romantic indiscretions. Join us for the laughter at 8:00pm on Friday and Saturday, November 7th and 8th, or 3:00pm on Sunday, November 9th.
If you are interested in seeing what the Clay Target Club is all about, come to the meeting during seminar on November 13th. For more information check us out on Facebook at Marshall Clay Target Club.
