Your new School ID card must be worn visibly at all times while on campus. Lost or destroyed IDs will result in a $5 charge for a replacement. Plan somewhere to store your ID when you leave school, so it is always ready for the next day. A good place might be in your backpack. Do you want a unique lanyard for your ID card to show your true Bobcat Pride? The Enterprise Work Study Students will be selling rustic beaded lanyards for $10 and Bobcat Pearl lanyards for $12 outside the cafeteria during all lunches. Cash only. Stop and check them out!  Senior Bundles are on sale. There are two bundle options this year: the Silver bundle is $60 and it includes senior t-shirt, hoodie, and panoramic photo. These items cannot be purchased anywhere else! The Navy bundle is $360 and includes the exclusive t-shirt, hoodie, and photo. Plus, a yearbook, homecoming ticket, prom ticket, and grad bash ticket.
