TRACK & FIELD: The track and field team will compete in regional competition this Saturday, May 1st, at Satellite Beach High School in Satellite Beach, Florida. We have 7 team members who qualified to compete at this level and we wish those Panthers all the best!
 
SIDELINE CHEER: The sideline cheer squad will be holding tryouts in the NHS gym on May 26th (changed date). Open gym, in order to work on skills, will be conducted on Tuesdays and Thursdays through May 20th. Clinics to prepare for tryouts will be on May 22nd, May 24th, and May 25th. Interested participants must either have a current physical on file with NHS or bring one with them to the open gym night.

Today’s reminder:
Dress Code: Make sure your school attire is appropriate and not distracting. As the weather gets cooler, please remember that you are not permitted to wear pajama pants or bring blankets to school. Do not wear hats or hoodies in the buildings. Failure to follow the dress code guidelines may result in lunch detention.
 
Students, please remember to check your school email accounts everyday for important announcements and reminders. Remember, if you are having trouble or have questions about anything at all, turn to an adult. And please, if you see something, say something (www.getfortifyfl.com). Everyone believes in your success but “whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right --Henry Ford” BUT most importantly, “Always remember, Shepp loves the kids!”
