Are you golfing in the Bomber Bash Golf Outing Oct. 4th? You could win 3 hours of fun and 18 holes of indoor virtual golf for you and three of your friends!

Other amazing prizes that day include a brand new Taylor Made driver, a top of the line putter, gift certificates to improve your game at the Golf Dome! Less than a week away- Can’t wait to see you on the course.

Attention Students: There is a new procedure for lunches. Each day you will need to complete the “Free Lunch Form” in your student portal if you are obtaining a lunch. You will need to do this daily if you need lunch from the cafeteria.

A few quick reminders:

● Remember to take the picture of your school ID!!!! This way, if you lose it, you can still access signing into the virtual cohort or when leaving the building. Take a moment and do it right now!
● Students, you are responsible for your Desk Shield. If you damage the one you were issued at the beginning of the year, a replacement shield will need to be purchased. Desk Shields are a mandatory requirement. The replacement cost is $20.
● All seniors should have received a Jostens cap and gown packet. Most were distributed in first block classes. If you did not receive one, stop by Guidance today for another. In-school orders will be Friday, Oct. 2 during lunch blocks.
● All sophomores should have received a Jostens class ring packet. If you did not receive one, or if you are a junior or senior who wants to order a class ring, stop by Guidance today to get a packet with ring sizer. In-school orders will be Friday, Oct. 2 during lunch blocks.
● Student Planners are available in Guidance for $5.
● Yearbook orders are $55 if ordered by October 2nd. After that, the price increases, so turn those orders in early!

Do you want to be able to read announcements just like this one you are hearing right now? If so, see Mr. Novak in The Hub, formerly known as the library.

Kenston Academy is open for business! Stop in The Hub every Monday through Thursday after school from 2:20 to 3:20 to meet with a tutor or just use the space to work. All topics will be covered and no appointment is necessary. Be sure to take advantage of this great resource!

SENIOR PORTRAITS: Senior portrait specifications for other Photographers: Size—no less than 300 dpi. Pose—only traditional full color portrait, head and shoulders only. Background—must be on the spectrum from cobalt to navy blue (no light blue). No hats, props, hands or inappropriate clothing. Submit your photograph electronically by email attachment to: justin.fodor@kenstonapps.org or on a CD. Under no circumstances will a senior portrait be scanned from a print.

Attention all students: A community service opportunity is forthcoming in the next few days. Geauga Meals on Wheels has a huge mailing and needs students to stuff and seal envelopes. Each box contains 300 envelopes and is worth 3 hours of community service. Due to the great demand over the summer for this project, we are limiting students to two boxes. All boxes are on a first-come, first-served basis, SO — if you are interested in participating, you need to come to Guidance ASAP to get your name on the list. Once the boxes arrive, we will contact you in class. Again – first-come, first-served. There are only 25 boxes available.

Attention seniors: There is a scholarship available in Guidance for seniors who plan to major in natural or environmental sciences in college. Details for the Protect Geauga Parks Bob McCullough Memorial Conservation Scholarship are available in Guidance. The deadline to apply is 6:00 PM on Friday, October 23, 2020.
