The WMHS art club will have its first meeting of this school year today in Mrs. Ganley's room 1109. Come see what we are all about and meet others with an interest in art. The meeting will be from 3:15 to 3:45. We will nominate this year's officers.
Interact club meeting today at 6:00 pm in the choir room. This meeting is for last years members only. We will make many important decisions including electing new members, picking our club t-shirt as well as picking the theme for the homecoming dance. For those of you that are not chosen to be in Interact this year, West Monroe High School has several similar clubs that work on community service projects and encourage everyone to join something else if this is not the year that you are chosen for Interact. Key Club and Jr Civitans are both awesome clubs that just might be the club for you to volunteer with this year.
If you would like to join Spanish Club, see Mrs. Ballance in room 2207 for information. You must be in Spanish 2 now or have completed 2 years of Spanish to join. The cost is $15 and includes a t-shirt.

Tadpoles applicants who received the required teacher recommendations will be posted outside Mrs. Cavin's door on Wednesday. Those students should attend a meeting in the cafeteria Thursday, September 1st  at 6pm. You can pay the $20 club fee at that time.
Former and current French students may sign up for French club starting on Wednesday. The cost is $15, which includes the t-shirt.

All current and prospective student council members:  There is a meeting this Thursday at 6:30 pm in the WMHS library.  If you are planning on running for freshman officer or representative you must be at this meeting.  The meeting for prospective members will end at 7 so make sure you have a ride to pick you up at that time.

Athletic Passes are being sold in Coach Walker’s room 1221 and coach McDuffie’s room 5207 before school and during lunch. Athletic passes get students into all regular season, home games at West Monroe, not just football, all sports. Save money and buy yours today, $20. Coach Arledge is also selling Athletic Passes. Just FYI
Juniors and Sophomores you can pick up your ID in the boardwalk by the cafeteria during both lunch shifts. Tables will be labeled by grade and alphabet. The picture that is on your ID will appear in the yearbook, unless you are a senior and took a special picture in Albritton Studios. Do not lose this ID! It is good for 3 years. It will cost $5 to replace in Student Services if you lose it. If you have not taken a yearbook picture yet, you WILL NOT have an ID.
California Trip: Anyone interested in a trip to California in July 2017 should pick up an information page in wing 3 hallway downstairs. Meeting about this trip will be today at 5:30 in the library.
Jr. Civitan club: The WMHS Junior Civitan club is a service organization for students. Members make a difference by volunteering at school, participating in community outreach projects, and helping people with developmental disabilities. If you are interested in joining, we will have our first meeting today in room 6206 immediately after school.
Yearbook pictures and ID retakes will be Tuesday, September 13th in the Main Office Lobby starting at 7:30 am.

If you would like a retake of that picture, you must pay $5 on retake day.
Lastly, Attention all students taking a dual enrollment class through ULM:

- Your fall payment is due to Mrs. Hunt in room #4209 NO LATER THAN Thursday, Sept. 15th. All payments must be a check or money order made out to ULM, and your full name should be on the check/money order.
- You will only pay for classes  that you are taking this semester. So, the following will be paid NEXT semester: statistics, the second half of pre-calc.,  and the second half of English.
- The Ouachita Parish School Board will be paying for one DE class for all JUNIORS and SENIORS this semester. That's $150 less what you thought you'd be paying!
If you have any questions concerning payment, please see your dual enrollment teacher or Mrs. Hunt.
