Juniors,
graduating class of 2017, the North Dakota University System announces the North Dakota Scholarship Program. This program recognizes outstanding North Dakota high school seniors for scholastic achievement as measured by their ACT scores. Scholars will be announced in fall 2016 and will receive a letter from the North Dakota University System designating them as North Dakota Scholars. North Dakota Scholars who enroll in a North Dakota college or university will be awarded an in-state tuition scholarship. Students who attend a private institution will be awarded an amount not to exceed the highest public school rate in the state. Not all students who place in the top ninety-fifth percentile will be awarded the North Dakota Scholars award due to limited funding.

Requirements: North Dakota residency, graduate from a North Dakota high school, attend a North Dakota college or university during 2017-18 as a full-time student and have taken the ACT before July 1, 2016

Message from the Superintendent
Due to the increase amount of drugs that are becoming more available within our community and are finding their way into our high school we will be utilizing our dog Elvis more frequently. What does this mean for the high school? It means that Elvis will be visiting the High School randomly at least once per week until the end of the school year. I am putting this information in the daily bulletin so staff and students are made aware that as a school district, drugs will not be tolerated within our high school. As a staff and student body, it is ALL of our responsibility to make our students and staff safe to attend school. Please remember any students caught with drugs will face possible expulsion from the high school.

Thank you,

Dr. Lana DeCoteau, Superintendent
Seniors
