Gryphon Student Announcements for 12/11/13

For Wednesday, December 11, 2013
 “L” Day

·   PSAT results will be available for students to pick up Wednesday morning, 12/11/13, in the COMMONS from 8:45 am-9:30 am.  Resources for getting the most from your results can be found through Collegeboard's My College QuickStart program:          

·    Candy Grams! Get your Candy Grams! It's the time of year for the sweetest L&N holiday tradition! Candy Grams are $1 and will be sold by SGA at lunches from Dec. 6th - 13th. They will then be delivered during advisory on Monday, Dec. 16th. Treat your friends or faculty this holiday season!

·    Start your Winter Holiday with a 2014 virtual basketball tournament in the Commons from 2:00 – 6:30 on Dec 19!  Monies raised will go towards this year’s prom. See information below.  If you are participating, you should plant to stay here at dismissal at 12:30 in the Commons (so do NOT turn in your early release permission slip for Thursday).

·    Don’t forget to bring back your early release permission slips to your Advisory teacher.

·    Prom tickets will be on sale for $40 until the day we come back to school in January. After that, they will be $45, and after January, the price will rise to $50. You can purchase your tickets from Mrs. Brown or Ms. Stanish. So please, buy them now before prices go up! Seniors remember that your  senior fees include 1 prom ticket – but they still need to be paid, and you must be sure your date has a ticket!

Opportunities to be involved with your school:
·   Mtg (Magic: The Gathering) meets on Tuesday's in the commons at 4:45pm until 6:00pm. Everyone is welcome to join, whether you know, or do not know how to play.
·   Chess club in room 202 at 8:30 on Wednesday mornings.

·   Scholars bowl team practice Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4:35, room 207.

·   Gryphon Film Club meets Thursday afternoons from 4:45 to 6:00 in room 214. 
·   Gryphon Gaming Club, Fridays, from 8:45 – 9:15 in room D119.  Emphasis is on video gaming, but all gamers are welcome!

·   Teens for Christ meets Monday mornings at 9:00 in room D113.  All are welcome.

From the guidance office: 
·   Seniors: Need help filing the FAFSA?  Tusculum College will host “FAFSA Frenzy” on January 30th at 4:00 pm at the Knoxville Tusculum Campus. This is a community service event to help ALL Knox County seniors and their families file the FAFSA at no charge regardless what college the student plans to attend.  Participants should bring their most recent tax return documentation and any questions they may have about financial aid and the FAFSA. 
Quote of the day from an unknown source:

You can’t fall if you don’t climb.  But there’s no joy in living your whole life on the ground.
