Member Announcements & Events
Clipper yearbook staff members are preparing to sell advertising in the 2019-20 Clipper Yearbook. 

We're excited to share with the community that the 2018-19 Clipper yearbook was recently selected to the Walsworth Gallery of Excellence, which is awarded to approximately the top five percent of the over 4,000 yearbooks that Walsworth publishes across the country. The 2019 "Look at it this way" yearbook also earned a Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) Gold Medalist rating with two All-Columbian marks in the Visual and Verbal categories (948/1000 pts.)

The students are striving to create another excellent product this year and would love your support in order to make this possible. 

We have a circulation of approximately 575 students, which is then multiplied by all the family members and friends who also read the book. Then, when you factor in the longevity of yearbooks, you'll see that this advertising purchase pays off for years to come. 

We have a new option this year to conveniently place your order ONLINE !
( http://bit.ly/KHSYBAds2020 ) If you order online, a student will take the graphics and specs you share with us, and then create an email proof for you to look at and approve. I'm also attaching our traditional paper order form , which you are welcome to mail in to the high school office with "Attention: Karen Johnson" on the envelope. If you prefer face-to-face interactions, we are also happy to send a student to you to pick up the order form and/or meet with you to answer any questions. Please contact us and we will have a student reach out to you and work with you to make sure your advertisement best fits your needs.

We look forward to working with your business and value your support and the real-world learning opportunities you're providing for our students. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Are you ready for the holidays?
 
I have an offer that might make it less stressful for you and your loved ones.
 
Beginning November 1 st  to December 1 st 1440 Concierge   will be offering a holiday special.  You can give yourself or a loved one an extra three hours of time.  If you’re wondering what three extra hours of time could mean to you during the holiday frenzy, think holiday shopping and gift ideas; home organization before the family arrives, getting holiday cards mailed, gift wrapping, and day-of event prep and coordination.   We do it, so you don’t have to .  And if you need something not listed on our list (click  here  to be taken to the list on our website), please contact us so we can whip up a proposal for you.
 
The Elf Package details:
1. They will be on sale beginning November 4 th , and will end December 1 st .
2. $90 for 3 consecutive hours to delegate your tasks and enjoy some free time!
3. They must be used between October 29 th  to January 17 th , 2020.
4. No long-term commitment required.
5. They can be gifted or kept for yourself.
6. They can only be used Monday through Friday.  
7.  If weekends are requested there will be an additional charge of $25 at start of service.
8. All three hours must be used consecutively.
 
If you know someone who can use a few extra hours in a day this would make a great gift.  
 
Also, keep an eye out for our gift-wrapping events.  We will be, hopefully, setting up in various locations in the Northland.  If you run a small office and want to give your employees a perk, we can set up a gift-wrapping event in your office for you and your employees.  We’ll supply the quality paper and beautiful bows.
 
Let us know when you’re ready to get some extra time or give the gift of time.  We’ll be happy to help you out during the holiday season. 
We are excited to share some news!
A generous donor has offered $25,000 in matching funds to support the Kearney Food Pantry. We need to raise $25,000 in donations by December 15. With your support, the pantry would receive $ 50,000 to use toward a “Forever Home” and be able to continue meeting the increasing demands for nutritious food for families, homeless youth and senior citizens who do not have enough to eat.
 
What a wonderful opportunity to “ Double your Donation” by contributing to this matching campaign. It's not every day an offer like this comes along.  Please consider maximizing your donation by contributing to this exciting opportunity before December 15th.  

We can not do this without your help. Please help us by spreading the word of this opportunity to help our community.
