Help the Homeless Shoebox Drive / Helping the Homeless Contest-  Sept. 11th- Sept.20th 

 

This year SGA has decided to incorporate the entire school in the "Help the Homeless" drive. Every year SGA as well as a handful of other clubs collect personal hygiene necessities to create shoe boxes for the Fullerville Mission to hand out to those in need. This year it will be part of the Homecoming points earned by classes to try and win the Homecoming Contest between classes.

 

Freshmen- Dental Floss, Wet Wipes, Q-tips

Sophomores- Deodorant, Brushes, Combs

Juniors- Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash

Seniors- Toothbrushes, toothpaste, Feminine Products

 

The contest goes 2 ways: 

1. Overall number of items per Class (Freshmen, Sophomores, etc)

2. Highest number of items brought in to 1st period (does not have to be all the same grade)

 

 

Homecoming Game and Dance on 9/29 from 9 - 11:45pm. Dance tickets are $5 presale and will be on sale the week of HC during lunches. Tickets bought at the door are $20. Only VRHS current students in good standing may attend. Dance dress code enforced (will be on ticket).

 

 

Free SAT Prep:

 

Mt. Prospect Baptist Church holds free SAT study classes for students preparing for the SAT exam. The schedule is posted underneath the Forms section of the Guidance website page, along with a contact phone number for students to call if you are interested in the classes.  Conducting the classes are teachers and a professor from UWGC.

 

 

General:

 

Communities In Schools has set up a pantry here at the high school for students. The pantry consists of school supplies, food,

clothing, hygiene products and some shoes. If you are in need, please see Mrs. Temekia Cheely. Her location is beside

Work-Based Learning in the 200 Hall (old Guidance area).

 

Are you looking for a job? Be sure to check out the GET HIRED! job board on the 200 hall.

 

 

More calculators are in! See Mrs. Porter (Room 903) or Mrs. Kaylor (Room 801) before or after school to purchase one.

 

Students that park in the gravel lot are expected to exit school through the student parking lot and out of Entrance 3 next to the 800/900 building.  Students are not to leave campus through the back of the gravel lot up through the neighborhood.

 

 

Attendance Awareness Month fact of the day: students who attend school regularly are more likely to graduate and find good jobs. In fact, a high school graduate makes on average $1 million more than a dropout over a lifetime.
