We ask that you move quietly between classes. Tomorrow, we will be keeping the first lunch in the cafeteria until it is time to move to your 4th hour class. Thank you for your cooperation! We're almost done!
Mark your calendar! Prom is May 4th.We will be selling tickets from April 8 to April 20 before school and after. Tickets will be sold for 55 dollars apiece.
Remember that everyone in your party has to pay for their tickets at the same time. Also, the tables seats 10 so buy your tickets sooner than later to insure that your party gets to sit together. doors will open at 5:30 and close at 6:15.

Over the weekend, the Dow High Robotics Team competed at the Robotics State Championships at SVSU.
Dow's robot faced off against 39 of the best teams in the state. Throughout the weekend, the robot got bent and broken, but was repaired and ready to play each match. Dow pulled off wins vs multiple former World Champions while maintaining one of the fastest ball-scoring robots in the Division. The team went 9-3 and finished the event in 7th place. This is the highest qualifying position Dow High has earned at the State Tournament. Dow ended the weekend being recognized by Ford Motor Company with an award for our robot's autonomous operation and driver-assist features; and the team was a Quarterfinalist in the Division Playoffs.
At the end of the tournament, Dow is ranked in the top 15% of the State and has earned the right to once again represent Michigan in the 2019 World Championships held in Detroit two weeks from now.
This will be the team's 7th trip to the World Championships.
Congratulations to the Robotics Team and good luck at Worlds!
