    ~Winter Dance tickets go on sale next week during all lunches for five dollars, and will be sold every day leading up to the dance. If you wish to bring a guest from outside the district, you must pick up a guest pass from the office and complete it before you purchase a ticket.

    ~ Baseball tryouts will be held on March 6th and 7th. Please sign-up ASAP. Contact Coach Brady or Coach Turner with any questions.

    ~10th Grade: Over the weekend, have your parents/guardians sign your permission form and bring it back on Monday. You may turn it in either to the main office or the guidance office. 

    ~Tuesday, the Gettysburg Chess Team travelled to Waynesboro to be dealt their first loss of the season. The merciless 4-1 thumping was mitigated only slightly by the 3rd board win from Jeremy Stultz. On the reserve boards, a win by Luke Blaney and a draw from Tyler Orchowski managed to preserve a hint of team dignity. Next Tuesday, the team will host New Oxford after school in the library at 3:00. Come out and watch!

    - Attention any senior who has not ordered a cap and gown yet, log on to Jostens.com to place your order.  February 25th is the last day to order.   Stop by the office to see Mrs. McDannell if you have any questions.

     

    Always Remember

    ~ Today marks International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau—to honor the memory of Europe’s Jews, who were targeted for annihilation. As our nation is grappling with an alarming surge in antisemitism, it is more critical than ever for us to remember the lessons of the Holocaust and pay tribute to its victims and survivors.

    ~Last Tuesday, the Gettysburg Chess Team hosted the Canners of Biglerville. The Warriors improved to 2-0-1 on the year with a 4-1 victory. A forfeit on board 5 paired with wins on boards 2-4 by MJ Rhoads, Jeremy Stultz, and Philip Neller contributed to the 'W'. Tomorrow, the team faces its next challenge, travelling to Waynesboro. Good luck!
