 “N” Day

·      Congrats on a successful first prom for the L&N over the weekend!  We had a great turnout, and despite all the other activity on Market Square and downtown it sounded like everyone was able to have an enjoyable evening. 
o   Congrats to our first ever Prom King and Queen: Ben Fomby and Carly Johson
o   Special thanks to the Prom Sponsors – Mrs. Brown and Ms. Stanish
o   Appreciation to the prom committee who worked all year on fundraising so tickets wouldn’t be $100 each! 
o   To start working on next year’s prom – STUDENTS WHO ATTENDED THIS WEEKEND’S PROM may wear their prom attire to school tomorrow for a $5 donation payable in the front office. 

·      Heads up on visitors – you’ve received information from Mr. Childers about a national tech company in the building Monday and Tuesday, and we also will be having future student tours at 10:00 Monday and 2:00 Tuesday.  Please remember your professionalism!

Quote of the day from Ken Venturi:
I don’t believe you have to be better than everybody else.  I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be.
