Good Morning!  We like to start each day here on “The Hill” with a moment of silence.  Please pause with me now for a brief moment of respectful silence.  Now please stand as we pledge allegiance to our flag.

Graduation for the class of 2010 is scheduled for this Friday night, May 21, at 7:30, in the stadium.  Students planning to participate in our graduation ceremony should plan on being at graduation practice this Thursday, May 20, from 9AM until noon in the stadium.  Those students not at practice this Thursday will not be allowed to march on Friday night.  Be at practice even if it is raining.  You can check our website at Dicksoncountyhighschool.com for up to the minute information about practice Thursday morning and graduation Friday night in case of inclement weather.

 

Information concerning this year’s graduation can be found at our website by clicking on Happenings and going to the assembly for potential graduates.

 

Seniors, it is very appropriate at this time to remind you that you must meet all academic and attendance guidelines as well as having a satisfactory discipline record in order to graduate.  Please, think before you speak or act during this very important week.  Do not do anything that could jeopardize your chance to participate in our graduation ceremony.  You are also reminded that all IOUs should be settled ASAP.

 

We will be on an altered schedule today.   Our seniors who did not earn exam exemption will take their 6th and 7th period exams today.  6th period will end at 9:31.  7th period will end at 11:18.  We will report to 1st period at 11:18.  After 1st period, all our students will report to 2nd, then CP, then 4th.  That’s 6,7,1,2,CP, an 4th.

 

Any senior that has a note to check out after any exam period may give their teacher for that period the note.  Your teacher will take your note and put your name on a checkout list.  The notes and the list will be turned in to the office after the exam period is over.  Students will not be allowed to leave class during the exam period unless called for by the office.  There should be no hallway traffic during exam periods.  Teachers, please do not turn in those students that are exempt from their exams as absent… only turn in those seniors who were supposed to be here for exams as absent.

Our Lady Cougar Softball team was outscored by Wilson Central.  This brings a very successful season for our girls to an end.  Thank you to Coach Buchanan, Coach Newberry, and all our players and managers.  You all showed it is more important to play for the letters on the front of the shirt than it is to play for the number on the back.  We always get positive remarks from visiting teams and we are very proud of you and your program.
