We are looking for individuals and community groups who are interested in leading a camp this summer. If you would like to put your special talents or interests to use, join us in leading a fun summer camp this year. If you are interested or know of someone who may be, please contact Kim Marx or Shannon Langford here at the school or via email at shannon@panesu.org.

This year the Sheridan County fair is scheduled for the last week of July and Friendly Festival is scheduled for August 17, 18, and 19th.  These activities will not interfere with the proposed calendar.

Are You Royalty?

Do you ride a horse? Have you ever wanted to be a Princess or a Queen? Well this could very well be the perfect opportunity. Every year at the Sheridan County Fair the Sheridan County Ag Society holds a Queen and Princess contest. Age divisions for the contest are 11-15 for princess and 16-23 for queen.  This contest is a one day commitment. You will need to supply your own clothes and horse. This years county fair will be during the last week of July.

There are many rewards of taking part in the Queen and Princess contests. This year also the Ag society is offering a $500 scholarship along with other various items. Some of these items include crowns, belt buckles, hay bags, and jackets.

If you have any question or would like more information contact Stacie Oliver at 308-684-3363 or Phyllis Lindsey at 308-282-2370.

Hunter Safety

Hunter safety will be starting up soon. It will be every Saturday in the month of February. Class will begin at 9a.m. every day and conclude at approximately 12p.m. On the last Saturday students will take a test and if they pass both the written test and the physical test they will then receive their certificate and license. Students are only allowed to miss one class and still pass. Also all students must turn 12 in the year of 2012, in order to receive their license.

For more information contact Rick Schneider at 308-638-7638 or 308-232-4509

Baskets In The Bank

If you can shoot a basketball, you can win free money. Security First Bank is once again donating scholarship money to one lucky HSHS student grades 9-12. Basketball players are also eligible to sign up this time. The student chosen for this will shoot five times. Each made shot is worth $100. To be in the contest you must sign up on the office door before the game on Thursday, February 9. This game will also be parent’s night!

PLAYERS please note that if you are chosen you yourself cannot shoot! You have to choose an audience member that is neither a coach nor a referee to shoot for you.
