Bauxite High School-we want you to join FBLA today! Our chapter has been very active in the last year.

We need you to join us on Thursday for an informational meeting during both CAPS. 1st CAPS meeting will be in Mrs. Anderson's room. 2nd CAPS meeting will be in Mrs. Newsom's room. FBLA Virtual Fall Conference is October 28. The t-shirt for this year is attached.

The Bauxite yearbook staff is hard at work getting rolling on this year's book. We are excited for the challenge of publishing the first yearbook in 100 years during a pandemic! That said, we need your help! Since many events from the Spring were cancelled, we have come up with some ideas for new spreads to fill that space. Please send pictures of the following, if possible: Pictures of you in Quarantine this spring/summer Pics of you enjoying a new hobby First day of school pics Sad closet prom dress/shoes/ etc pics Also, I understand that it can be awkward to have your picture taken, but please don't hide your face or refuse. We are trying to get as many pictures as possible, as we don't know what the future holds. Hopefully the year will run smoothly and we won't have to make any major adjustments, but PLEASE don't make it harder for the staff to get what we need. We'll be sending out surveys in the coming weeks, so please fill those out. We are looking forward to a great year and can't wait to document it! Thank You! Mrs Taylor and the Miner Staff
