• High School students 16 years old and older: Key Club is partnering with the Community Blood Center for a drive on Tuesday, October 3 in the multi-purpose room. This will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Head to the high school main office to sign up or scan one of the QR codes. You must have a photo id (or ask to have one printed) in order to participate. Students 16 years old must have a signed parent permission form as well.

• 10th-12th grades: The ASVAB is a test used to help students figure out what they may want to pursue when they are older. It is administered under the assistance of the military but it offers career information and an analysis of interests. It is composed of multiple parts including math, English, science and practical information related to electrical and automotive subjects, plus more. It is a timed test. After tests are scored, a representative comes back to help students interpret their scores and how the ASVAB can help them continue to learn about areas of interest. It has great information for all students, no matter their military views. If you are interested in taking this test, please sign up in Student Services before Friday, Sept. 29. After students sign up a date for the test will be scheduled. If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Schlenvogt or email lschlenvogt@eskymos.com.

Parking permit applications are now available in the high school main office. Cost for the permit is $15.

• Dance guest pass forms for Homecoming are now available in the high school main office.

• All Students: Chromebook screens cost $50 if they need to be replaced. Often the replacement times are over a week. You need to ensure you are walking with the computers closed, and closing the screens properly (do not just push down in the middle of the screen to close, close using the corners with both hands).

• All students: Do you have skills in a class and like helping others learn? Student Services is compiling a list of tutors for private tutoring sessions. If you are interested, please email Mrs. Schlenvogt (lschlenvogt@eskymos.com) your name, preferred method of contact, and specific class areas you are a strong student in and she will add you to the list. Tutors should meet in public places such as the Escanaba Library. Tutoring is a great way to make a little cash, earn volunteer hours, create a new friendship, and help another student while sharing your skills and talents. Any questions, see Mrs. Schlenvogt in Student Services.
