Attention quarter 2 woodworking students:  This is your official notification from Mr. Hennecke.  There are several of you who have not paid your materials bill, and or, have not given me your receipt. Remember:  According to the contract that you and your parents signed....Your deposit is forfeited after 10 class days into this quarter and the project becomes the property of the school.  We will SELL your project to recover our material expenses. Also, there are several projects with NO name on them.  We will also sell them to make room for this quarters projects as well.  SO....get your bills paid asap and come get your project out of the Woods Lab ASAP.   YOUR CLOCK is ticking and your 10 days of your contract expires very soon.  Mr. Hennecke

This program educates youth in the duties, privileges, rights, and responsibilities of American citizenship.
