If you are a FRESHMAN or a JUNIOR who did not play a fall or winter sport, you MUST test this spring. If you had a concussion in the previous season, you need to retest this spring. If you are a sophomore or a senior who have never played a sport at Appleton North, you need to tell this spring as well. If you have questions regarding your testing status or time, please contact Cassy Amo at [email protected]

Are you overwhelmed or stressed out? Then come to the Mindfulness training this Tuesday during I/E time in the counseling office. Mrs. Davis will introduce Mindfulness and share some strategies.

Now is the time to make a difference and clear your library fines.  Instead of paying in cash, pay your fines with gently used books and hygiene products for shelters in our area or with egg cartons for St. Joe’s Food Pantry.  This opportunity ends March 12.
