All Students

ALL STUDENTS:  If you're attending the football games tonight, please remember that there is no re-entry allowed. If you need extra clothing, money, an umbrella, whatever, please bring it with you. If there's a chance for rain in the forecast, be sure to bring any rain gear with you when you arrive.   Also, no unsealed bottles are allowed. If you have a factory sealed bottle of water, for instance, you can bring that with you.  Thank you. (Curry 9/22)

All fans planning to attend Vernon Hills High School football games and other athletic events are expected to understand the following:  Cheer positively and appropriately for your team; Negative and/or derogatory signs will not be allowed; and shoes, shorts and shirts must be worn at all times.  If you want to use face or body paint, that is fine, but you must still wear, at a minimum, shoes, shorts and a shirt.  A sports bra is not considered a shirt.  VHHS personnel will make the final determination if a fan is dressed appropriately. Thanks for your help in making our upcoming contest a great event.  (McDonald 9/22)

Come see a hip-hopin’, happenin’, cool, righteous filled, fun show.  Backlight Theatre Company presents The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet.  This whimsical reinvention of Shakespeare’s tragic love story is complete with rhymed couplets, creative wordplay, and fantastical machines.  The exciting ensemble of Freshmen and Sophomores have created a world that is more Seuss than Shakespeare.  Come for the rhymes and stay for a bumballoon battle!  Great for all ages!  Wednesday, September 27th and Thursday, September 28th at 7:00 p.m.  Tickets are $2 students and $3 for adults at the door.  (Phelan 9/26)

Hispanic Heritage Month continues!  At the end of the month, we will have a trivia contest in the foyer to see what you remember.  You may be the lucky winner of a piñata, so pay attention!  Yesterday’s question was: What country is Sophia Vergara, actress from the show “Modern Family”, from?  The answer is: Mexico.  Today’s question is: Gina Rodriguez is the star of the CW show, “Jane the Virgin”.  What is her heritage? Find out Monday!  (Garcia/Wietrzak 9/22)
