Good morning Talawanda, today is Thursday, May 12th, 2022.

ALL Seniors that haven’t picked up their Senior T-shirt needs to stop by the office to do so.  They are free, so get yours today.

SENIORS: Want to celebrate your last Friday at Talawanda in a creative and fun way? For just $1, you can participate in Talawanda’s first annual, senior only event: “Anything But a Backpack Day!” Seniors can stop by room 316 (Mrs. Sammons’s room) anytime between now and Friday to purchase your pass to participate. ON Friday, May 13, you are invited to get creative with transporting your materials- bring a shopping bag, pet carrier, etc. All money raised will go to fund the 2022 homecoming dance. Help leave your legacy here at Talawanda and have a blast while showcasing the senior class!

The drama production of One Acts starts tonight!  You can buy tickets at the door, or get them during lunch.  Zoinks will be the first Act and Time’s Up will be the second.  Time’s Up is a student written play, so if you want to see a 100% Talawanda production, tonight is your night.  Tickets are $8 and all proceeds benefit the Drama club.

Any boy interested in playing golf this fall, there will be a short informational meeting today immediately after school in Coach Cawein’s room, Room 215.  The upcoming season as well as summer golf practices will be discussed.  If you can not make the meeting, please make sure to stop by and see Coach Cawein sometime this week.

The list of seniors who have been invited to the Senior Scholarship Night is now posted outside of the guidance office.   If your name is on this list you will be receiving at least one scholarship from either the Talawanda Local or Oxford Community Foundations. This will be held Wednesday, May 18th at 6 pm.  Please RSVP to Mrs Roy.
