ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THURSDAY  10/10/19

HIGH SCHOOL AND MIDDLE SCHOOL

Titans! Tomorrow is battle of the titans! Please read the following information from our handbook to address what can be worn tomorrow:

All shirts worn for athletic practices and field day should be modest, loose fitting, in good repair (no holes, torn sleeves, etc.), should be worn either tucked in or well over the waist of the pants/shorts if not tucked in. No midriffs may be shown. T-shirts are preferred—no tank tops, camisoles, or sports bras may be worn as outer-garments. Sleeveless shirts may be worn if modest.

Pants/shorts should be modest, in good repair (no holes, torn sleeves, etc.) Pants should be worn at the waist and should be no shorter than mid-thigh, and no-longer than just below the knee. No short-shorts or long baggy shorts may be worn. No boxers or undergarments may be visible. No yoga pants.

Attire should be free of inappropriate messages. Sports team logos (e.g., Diamondbacks, Notre Dame), and apparel brand names (e.g., Adidas, Abercrombie) are acceptable, provided they do not make inappropriate allusions. These guidelines also apply to sweatshirts and jackets that students may wear. Footwear should be athletic in nature: no sandals, open-toed, or platform shoes. Hats and sunscreen may be appropriate, if the students will be in the sun. Hat styles should follow the same guidelines as above.

Archery and Bowyery – We will meet after school today.

Please check lost and found, today, for items such as school sweaters. The lost and found is located next to the vending machines in the cafeteria and on the bookshelf across from the front desk.

Friday! Titans come out and support our CPA titans as they take on Miami under the lights at 7pm. Dress up in your finest Hawaiian attire and cheer! 

Do you like Latin? Do you like competition? Do you want the chance for glory and honor, but running your gladius through your enemies is frowned upon in all 50 states? Then the Arizona Junior Classical League might be the thing for you! The AZJCL is a forum for students to compete with other students and schools in categories of knowledge, creativity, and the arts. If you thirst for more Latin knowledge, come today after school in the library in lieu of Virgil Club to participate in the great sport of Certamen to test your Latin scientia and for more information on how to sign up for the AZJCL! If you have any further questions, please see Mr. Mukai.

HIGH SCHOOL AND MIDDLE SCHOOL

Students are expected to be present in their classrooms and ready to begin class work prior to the late bell. A reminder about 1st hour tardies, from The Family Handbook: “The school disapproves of the accumulation of unexcused late arrivals to school, irrespective of the circumstances. Persistent first-period tardiness is highly disruptive of instruction and undermines student morale. On the third occasion (fourth for Middle School) that a student has an unexcused first-period tardy in a quarter, a detention will be issued to the student by the first–period teacher. For each subsequent unexcused first period tardy in the quarter, another detention will be issued. When a student has received four detentions for tardiness in a quarter, then he or she may receive an in-school suspension for a duration determined by the administration.”

Archery and Bowyery – the winners of our first arrow decorating challenge of the year are Bella Callanan (1st) and Sean Williams (2nd).  Do you want to be as cool as Bella and Sean? Well, you probably can’t be, but if you want to try pick up an Archery and Bowyery Club form from the magazine rack near the front desk.

CAFETERIA WILL BE CLOSED TOMORROW, TUESDAY, from 3:15 to 3:45 pm for Mentoring meetings. Please exit through the front doors tomorrow. Thank you!

Check the bookshelf across from the front desk for any items your parents may have dropped off for you during the day, such as: lunches; water bottles; glasses; assignments; school supplies; and athletic bags.
