Seniors:  Lincoln Land Community College will be hosting the First Semester Program on their Springfield campus this spring instead of at Pleasant Plains. You will still be in class with high school seniors, but will attend on the Lincoln Land Campus.  If you are interested in this program, please let me know right away so I can get you the information needed to register.


Students: Please remember at lunch if you put gum on your tray to throw it away before returning your tray.  It causes major problems with the dish machine.  Also when you are finished eating, please return your tray at that time, do not wait until the end of the lunch period.  Thank you
