Well Done To all of our music students, a message from Ms. Simpkins: Bravo! You were All amazing in the concert last night; our dancers, the Sig Singers, bands & orchestra, I am very proud of everyone. The concert was a wonderful success and the audience loved every moment. Thank you so much for participating with great energy and beauty. This concert will go down in Signature history as one of the greatest ever. I know Mr. Becker is just beaming from heaven with joy.


Host Families Needed Sig will be hosting five students from our partner high school in Osnabrück, Germany for four weeks next fall. If you think you and your family might be interested in becoming a host family for one of the five students, please contact Dr. Halvorsen in room 415 or by e-mail for more details.


AP Exams Attention AP Testers: If you have a morning AP exam, you will need to be in your seat at 8:00 am. If you have an afternoon exam, please know that you will need to make sure you clear your calendar for after school. Many afternoon exams do not finish until 4 or after. You will not be able to leave an AP exam early. If you have questions, please see Ms. Doyle.


Trivia Night Are you dreading your upcoming exams? Do you feel stressed out about everything you have to do? Are you looking for an easy way to do something fun with your friends? Come to the KC Commons after school on Thursday, April 18th for Trivia Night, hosted by Mock Trial. Come with a group of friends or by yourself to participate in rounds of exciting trivia. Snacks and baked goods will also be available for sale. Trivia night is an annual Sig tradition so don't miss it! Entry costs are $5 for an individual or $20 for a team of no more than five.


Exchange Student from Mexico Would you and your family be interested in hosting an exchange student from Mexico next year? Would you enjoy having a student live with your family while she attends Signature? If you would like to know more, please reach out to Mr. Chrockrem.

Indoor Lunch Locations Changing Starting Monday, the 3rd and 4th floor classrooms will not longer be available as lunch spots. Indoor lunch is available only in the Commons or the Silent Study room in KC101. If the grassy knoll closes due to weather, then we will open them back up just for the one day. For now, enjoy the beautiful spring weather outside, or find a seat indoors at the Commons!


Grassy Bowl Bonjour, Guten Morgan, Buen dia! Oh, what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day, so come on over to the Grassy Knoll and support the play of England and Spain at the lunchtime final of the Grassy Bowl today! Players, kick-off time 11:40 sharp!
