To be eligible for the lottery, you MUST have a current driver’s license. If you are selected for a spot, you will be notified via email, so please make sure to be checking your Unit 5 email. Students who are selected for a spot MUST BRING THEIR MONEY WITHIN 1 week of receiving the email, or your spot may be forfeited. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Bach or Ms. Taylor.

You must order by Sunday, October 16th.

Reminders about Student IDs: You will need your student ID for lots of things to help with your experience at Normal West. Please have your IDs when going to the guidance office, Nurse's office and getting on and off the buses for school and for athletic or extracurricular trips. Also, remember you can take a picture of your ID and keep it on your phone to use in our lunch lines for the cafe workers to scan for purchases. If you don't have an ID or are missing a picture on your ID, please stop by the IMC to have another ID made for you.
Thanks for helping with this as it makes things run more smoothly at Normal West!
