After much public demand and requests by district administration, the Mini-Thon club was asked to host their yearly event again this year.
As a result, Mini-Thon’s committee has announced that they are once again holding their night-of event, much to the excitement from students and staff alike.
However, this year’s Mini-Thon will be shorter, now running from 4-10 p.m. at the high school on April 27, 2018.

Jacob Franciscus, or known by his peers as, Norman, has been selected as one of the two September Students of the Month.
Jacob believes his key to success is not procrastinating. It helps himself, but also sets a good example for his peers. “This is a very valuable resource to gain in high school because it will never stop becoming useful throughout one's life, regardless of what they do,” said Jacob.
Jacob stays busy with Robotics, Mock Trial, and his officer duties within student council. As the 2017 student council president and one of the two PASC state conference co-chairs Jacob holds a lot of responsibility within the club.
