Do you love efficient human transportation? Do you love the feeling of the wind on your face as you zoom down a giant hill? Then you should join Talawanda’s Cycling Club! We’ll be going on group rides around Oxford, learning some proper bike safety for road rides, and doing many fun cycling based activities, possibly even learning to unicycle! It’s a great way to stay active while seeing Oxford in  a entirely new, exciting way. Come stop by Mrs. Schrans’s room 216 after school Wednesday.

Do you want to do service and have fun doing it?  If so, Key Club is for you.  Key Club is an organization devoted to doing various community service activities and projects throughout the year, and is a great way to help others in our community, as well as to record service hours for NHS or even college applications.  An informational meeting will be held after school on Monday, September 9.  Come for food and a good time.

This year,  The World Language Club (Voila) is partnering with The American Red Cross.  If you are interested in learning more, plan to attend the Informational Open House on Tuesday, Sept. 10 – immediately after school in Room 118.

Attention Seniors – there will be a College Essay Workshop today after school from 2:30 – 4:00 PM. This is an opportunity to have your college essay reviewed by an admissions counselor or discuss ideas for essays that you still need to complete. This 1 on 1 help is offered completely free of charge! Our past graduates who attended found this to be a valuable experience and we trust you will as well. Come with your chromebooks and any/all essays that you need to complete as part of the college admissions process.

And on Saturday afternoon Talawanda Alum Maurice Thomas surpassed the 2,816 yard mark for the Miami RedHawks in their 48-17 win over Tennessee Tech so he has now collected enough yards in his career to run straight from Yager Stadium to the high school he attended, the old Talawanda High School.
