ID Cards and ASB Cards
Each student receives a FREE identification card and you are expected to carry it with you while at school. The card must be presented when checking books out of the library, purchasing tickets, redeeming ASB rewards or attending school functions.
The ID card becomes an ASB card when a special sticker is purchased. Cards cannot be transferred to others. Students with an ASB card receive discounts on supplies and tickets. Lost ID cards are replaced at the ASB Office for $3.00.
The ASB sponsors special events, monthly lunch activities and spirit days where students may win prizes.
The Yearbook (Runic)
Yearbooks—produced by the yearbook staff—may be purchased in the ASB throughout the year and are distributed in mid-May.
Pictures taken in the Fall for ID cards are used by the office and yearbook staff. In the Spring, individual and class pictures are also taken for the convenience of students and parents—if parents like, they may purchase packages. Students are expected to follow the dress guidelines announced prior to the photos.
The ASB sponsors several dances; ID cards are required to purchase tickets and to attend the dance. Dance rules are printed on the tickets.
ASB sponsors field trips to surrounding theme parks; all students are eligible to attend.
