Good Morning Talawanda. Today is Monday, January 25th, 2021.

If you are a senior and care about voting for your Senior superlatives in the yearbook, today is the last day to turn in your votes.  Look in your email for the link to the google form.  No votes will be counted after today so make sure you get yours done!

Please make sure you are wearing your mask throughout the entire day.  The only exceptions are during lunch.  Stay safe Talawanda.

Just a reminder that PSAT will take place tommorrow.  Students who are taking the PSAT will report to 1st period and will be called down to the PAC around 8:05.  Students who are face-to-face will be dismissed to lunch after the test and report to their next class.

Did you start a new hobby during the pandemic?  The Talawanda Tribune is doing a story for their virtual magazine, Changing Perspectives, on students and staff members who have developed a new hobby since last spring.  Email talawandatribune@talawanda.org if you’re interested in being profiled for your new skill!
