Seniors: Make sure you check out the December Scholarship list that has been posted in the Class of 2021 google classroom and is also available on the school's website.

Jostens will be here this Wednesday at 1:00 pm to meet with any seniors that need to place orders or would like to make a down payment. This will take place in the commons area.

Last call to sign up for the Academic Challenge on Google Classroom (formerly known as WYSE). Please use Google classroom code: usgunpa. Questions: Ask Mrs. Johnson or Mrs. K. Hogg.

Attn all Cougars interested in joining this year's scholar bowl team! There is a sign-up sheet outside Coach Kohnen's door (classroom 16W). Please sign-up with your name, class year, and email to join this year's Google classroom! Practices will start next week! If you have any questions, email Coach Kohnen or stop by 16W!

For those who are scheduled to donate blood tomorrow, you should have received your appointment slip today. Please read over the information on this slip and contact Mrs. Boruff if you have any questions or concerns. It is very important that you eat breakfast tomorrow and drink adequate fluids before you donate. If you are 16, you should have received a parental permission slip also, this must be completed and brought with you when you donate or you won't be able to. Thanks again to all who signed up!!

The ME Day list for sophomores, juniors and seniors is now posted in the locker area.
We will again be collecting food and new toys for BCMW. There are two cans by the front office. We will be collecting until Dec. 15. Thank you in advance for your donations.
Students: Need an extra hoodie, sweater or jacket for the cooler weather? Come shop the Central Supply Store fall/winter clothing giveaway! There are lots of new and gently used items to choose from, so please stop by the stage to check out what’s there. The Clothing Store is open to all students, and is a great way to stock up on a few extra items to keep you warm through the coming months. The stage is open to shoppers each day from 1:00-1:30, or you may e-mail Mrs. Koerkenmeier at mkoerkenmeier@centralcougars.org to schedule an individual time to shop.
The 2020 yearbooks are in. Please stop by the Superintendent’s office to pick them up.

Are you planning on attending college after high school and wanting to get some general education courses completed at a fraction of the cost at Kaskaskia College? Junior and senior students can take select courses through KC's Foundation After School program in which you will only be responsible for paying for the textbooks and lab fees. Tuition, and fees are waived. Students at all grade levels have access to the Jump Start program in which you can take a recommended college course at half the cost of tuition. Registration for KC's Spring semester starts on October 26th. Please see Miss Lohman or Mrs. Jones if you have any questions or would like registration paperwork.

Reminders to all students who need to attend a class remotely:

1) Students need to be on the Google Meet or Go Guardian video conference at the start of each class. If students join late, it is extremely difficult for teachers to take accurate attendance. Also, if students do not have an excuse for the tardy, then consequences will be issued similar to those for being late to in-person class.

2) When attending classes remotely, students must use their centralcougars.org Google account. If you login with another account then you will be asked to leave the meeting and rejoin with the correct account. Again, if this becomes a common occurrence for an individual student, then disciplinary action may be taken.

Juniors and Seniors - a few reminders for before school
• We appreciate you waiting in your vehicles until 7:55; however, please make sure you are prepared to walk in the building and proceed straight to 1st hour. This might require you to pack your backpack the day before in preparation for 1st hour. If you do not enter the building until close to 8 am and still have to access your locker, you will be tardy to class.
