  • Some announcements
    • Attention all juniors interested in running for student council: elections will take place right after the Easter break. Please stop by the student activities office to pick up a nomination packet. This year we are doing things differently and everyone running will be running for the top twelve spots instead of by position. Once the twelve have been chosen, a separate election will be held for the senior class president and student body president positions.
    • Attention juniors: anyone interested in auditioning for the current “Communications” position, please see Mr. Ferry as soon as possible. Next year’s morning PA announcement voice and video announcement host will be selected through an audition process based on personality, creativity, dependability and much more.
    • TIGER TALK Store is now open. You can go to our website and click over to our partnership with Café Press and see the items in our store. Remember all profits from the store go back to the students, clubs and teams at Holy Cross.
