Attention all current AP students: Your last opportunities to attend an AP information session is this Thursday in AP Geography or this Friday in AP Psych. It is mandatory to attend a session, so please plan ahead.

Attention students going to prom this Saturday, April 21: Here are some quick reminders. You need to have a state issued ID to get into the Mall of America. A student ID does NOT work. IF you do not have one, a chaperone 21 or older can walk you to the event center. There will also be school chaperones available to escort you into the dance if you do not have a state issued ID. Please enter the mall from the West Parking Ramp on street level 1. Enter the main mall entrance and go into Nickelodeon Universe to find Parkview Event Center. You must arrive to the mall no later than 8:30 pm. The dance ends at midnight. Any bags brought into the event will be subject to a search. If you are participating in Grand March please arrive at Simley early to check in. Names will be announced starting at 4:30 pm.

Follow the yellow brick road! We have placed these yellow bricks in and around IGH- if you find one they’re good for a buy-one-get-one ticket to Simley’s production of the Wizard of Oz! Limit one per customer- redeem at the box office before any performance.
