Students, a few reminders about semester test days. Tests will be taken on Wednesday 12/19 and Thursday 12/20. Periods 1, 3, 5, 7 will test on Wednesday; periods 2, 4, 6, 8 will test on Thursday. On these days we have an “open campus”. Don’t be late for your testing time; makeup tests will be given at 2:45 if needed. If you are in the building outside of your testing times, you must be in the commons or the IMC studying, NOT in the halls. The schedule is subject to change in the event of a weather-related late start, early out or cancellation so watch your email these days for announcements. Friday, December 21 school will dismiss at 1:15 but class times will run according to our 11:30 dismissal schedule; at 11:30 you are to report to your J-Term manager to finalize plans for J-Term. Finally, there will be no hot lunch service on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday; instead, sack lunches will be provided for those who order ahead of time. If you plan to eat lunch here on these days you must sign up to purchase sack lunches by Monday.



EBPE will finish for the semester on Friday, December 14. Next Monday and Tuesday early bird will be open at regular times for anyone needing make-up lifts from the quarter. Regular EBPE starts again Monday January 14 after J Term has been complete. Any questions email Coach Stensland. Athletes need to ask their coaches for their lifting schedules over beak and during J term, as you will continue to come in and lift.



On Friday and Saturday we are hosting a wrestling tournament. Students need to make sure their personal belongings are either taken home or securely locked in the locker rooms.



Students interested in playing softball, please join Mrs. Doyle in the HS Art Room on Tuesday, December 18th at 7:50 AM. We will discuss off-season opportunities and there will be donuts.



Lost and found items will be located on tables by the trophy case near the elevator until Friday, December 21. After that date items will be donated. Please stop by and see if items belong to you.



If you were not able to make the mock trial meeting this week, please contact Mr. Klett. The case file is scheduled to be released next week, so you will need to pick up a copy before break.



Fan Cloth Orders - All apparel orders from the baseball fundraiser are in. If you ordered from an 8th-12th grade player they will be delivering your order. If you did an individual order that order is available in the office you chose for delivery.  If there are any questions regarding your order contact Coach Hill at chill@roland-story.k12.ia.us



Student Council and NHS students will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Loaves and Fishes/Norsemen Food Pantry and toys for the Salvation Army. On Thursday, Dec. 13th, the seminar groups that have donations of at least 50 food items and 10 toys will receive 1 (15min) late pass. Also, the seminars with the most items donated by that Thursday, will have 1st -3rd place prizes. Top seminar will receive a pizza party!




Big Buddies S2-Due 12/14

The elementary students and staff love it when HS students come to their building to help the teachers or to be a mentor for a student. The time you spend over there can count toward your Silver Cord hours, however, you do not have to be seeking the Silver Cord to be a BIG BUDDY.

Please fill out This Big Buddy Google Form for Semester 2! If you are NEW to Big Buddies you must have a short conversation with Ms. Heisterkamp before signing up.
