Winter Sports Preseason Meeting Rescheduled
Due to the volleyball tournament game, the winter sports preseason informational meeting has been rescheduled for Monday, October 24th at 6:00 PM in the commons. The Ohio High School Athletic Association requires the Houston High School Athletic Department to hold preseason informational meetings for parents and athletes in grades 7-12. A parent and athlete are only required to attend one of these meetings per school year. If a parent and athlete attended the fall meeting, the parent and athlete do not have to attend the winter or spring meetings. Please mark your calendars and plan accordingly. Again, this is a mandatory meeting and your child’s participation will be declined until the requirement is met.

Houston High School presents Loving Lives on October 28th and 29th at 7:30 PM in the commons. Tickets are $5. The production is under the direction of Ms. Bornhorst. It's 1948, it's the dead of winter, and it's time for "Loving Lives," a radio soap opera on its last legs. A pompous romantic lead, an incapacitated announcer, an obnoxious kazoo-tooting child star, and multiple off-the-air seductions all contribute to the hilarious demise of the radio show.
Seniors, it's time to start bringing in senior pictures, baby pictures, and other pictures for the senior slideshow. Pictures can be dropped off in Mr. Brown’s computer lab whether they are hard copy or digital copies. Any pictures that can be sent in digitally (on a CD, flash drive, camera, or email) will be greatly appreciated since scanning the pictures takes up the most time. If you bring in hard copies of the pictures, please write your name on the back so they can be returned to you. Please turn in your pictures on time as no late pictures will be accepted unless you have spoken to Mr. Brown first. There are multiple deadlines for pictures and they are listed below. For more information about the senior slideshow, contact Mr. Brown at the school either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (937) 295-3010 ext 2013.
It is time to sign up to be a “Houston Wildcat Athletic Patron.” This year we will again be including a page that mentions you and your family in the winter sports program. By taking part, you will receive one line to list your family members’ names in the program. You will also be helping the athletic department and the athletic boosters cover the many costs involved in running our athletic programs. Other schools’ winter sports programs include similar pages. They have been very well received in those communities. It has also been very successful here for the past eight years.
The cost of being a “Houston Wildcat Athletic Patron” is $10. We will put a page in the program with the heading, “The Houston Athletic Department and The Houston Athletic Boosters would like to thank the following Houston Wildcat Athletic Patrons.” The list of names will appear under this heading.
