Signature School Bulletin for Monday, August 20, 2018

Medications Signature School provides acetaminophen and ibuprofen as needed to students whose parents give permission for us to do so on the Student Profile Form. Students should not have medications with them at school (with the exception of life-saving medications such as inhalers, EpiPens, insulin, etc.)

 

If a student needs to take medication (prescription or over-the-counter) while at school, the parent/guardian should bring the medication to the office and complete the proper paperwork. If you have any questions, please call or email Mrs. Roscoe.

Lunch system Do you know how to use the online lunch system? Whether you want to sign up for Silent Study during lunch, eat at Lic's, or attend a college visit during lunch, here's how you do it: Go to lunch.signature.edu/lunch (this link is available on our website). Your username should be your Firstname.Lastname. The first letter of your first and last name is capitalized. Your password should be "sig", all lowercase letters. If you have difficulties logging on, come to the office and we can help you! *Reminder that freshmen are not yet allowed to sign up for Silent Study or to eat at Lic's, but freshmen CAN sign up for college visits using the online system.


 

Community Service Youth United is an initiative through Habitat for Humanity that invites high school youth to work together to fund and build homes in their own communities. Targeting young, enthusiastic volunteers to build homes, Youth United develops leadership skills and engages youth in positive service experiences. There will definitely be free food at every meeting. We will usually meet from 4 to 7 on the first Wednesday of every month. If you’re interested, talk to John Strezewski, Tyler Robinson or Mrs. Doyle. All volunteers are welcome. P.S. It looks great on college applications to be affiliated with a recognizable community service organization like Habitat for Humanity, so if for nothing else come for that and the free food.
