October is College Knowledge Month in Minnesota.

We will host a FAFSA presentation for seniors and parents on Thursday October 11 at 6 pm in Warrior Hall.

Annually a commemorative coffee mug is created as a gift to all attendees and this year they are inviting the youth artists to submit a design for the custom art for the mug!

Congratulations to the Kingsman for winning the second annual hocolympics! The team of Collin McEllistrem, Jackson Rohlader, Michael Schrer, and Anthony Apps took the competition leading by 4 points. If you are lucky you will get to face them at the pep fest later today! 

Attention boys basketball - because there is no school on Friday there will be NO OPEN GYM tomorrow morning. 

Come on out Saturday morning at 10 am to celebrate with your girls soccer for the last ever fall event to be held at Matson field! Come kiss it goodbye while cheering for your warrior women.

Students remember as we close out homecoming week to continue to make good choices!

Warrior PRIDE

P       -         Preparation

R       -         Respect - For each other and the property of others.

I         -         Integrity - Do the right thing. All the time.

D      -         Determination

E       -         Excellence - Actions that are always above reproach.

 

We have received numerous reports of vandalism in our communities, especially egging of homes, cars, and other property. These types of behaviors are absolutely NOT within the character of Warrior PRIDE. Beyond telling us about the incidents, community members are also reporting acts of vandalism to the local police. These behaviors may result in school consequences.

 

At Henry Sibley High School we are all part of a larger community that embodies healthy relationships through a lens of equity, empathy, respect, and care for each other. Our relationships with each other are the embodiment of Warrior Pride. Together we have created and sustain a remarkable community. Destructive behaviors by members of our student body only bring it down. Do not be the person who tears down others, causes harm to your good name, and makes Henry Sibley students look like mean-spirited people.

School events such as Homecoming, participation in extracurricular activities, and leadership opportunities within the school are a privilege and not a right.  These privileges can be impacted by poor choices made by individuals. Destructive behaviors are conduct unbecoming a Henry Sibley student.

 

Let’s fill our communities with Warrior PRIDE! RED and Vegas GOLD is about the GREAT things that we do at Henry Sibley High School.
