Cougar Band Fundraiser Saturday, April 21 -- 10:00 am-5:00 pm

Seguin is hosting its 1st Annual one-day Mattress Sale Fundraiser on Saturday, April 21, 10:00 am-5:00 pm. For one day only, Seguin High School’s Band hall will be transformed into a mattress showroom. See information about the sale.

There will be 30+ mattress floor models on display for customers to try. Adjustable power bases, premium pillows, bed frames, and mattress protectors will be available. The brands include Simmons Beautyrest, Southerland, Beautyrest Black Ice, and Wellsville. All beds are available in all sizes, come with factory warranties, and are made to order. Delivery and haulaway are available. Best of all, the Juan Seguin Band benefits from every purchase, and the beds are priced much less than retail stores because of the fundraising company’s unique business model. If you are considering a new bed for someone in your home, Juan Seguin Band wants you at the sale.

2017-2018 AISD Calendar Update

Since schools have not been closed this year due to inclement weather, AISD will release students two days early, on June 1. May 31 and June 1 will be exams and early dismissal for secondary schools, and June 1 will be early dismissal for elementary students. However, if schools need to be canceled for any reason later this spring, students may need to attend one or both of those days. Campuses and district staff will be revising end-of-year activities accordingly.

Please note that this applies only to students. Teacher and staff work days will not change.

College Wednesdays

• Please wear jeans and the school colors of the week.
• AVID students will be on the lookout for faculty and staff who demonstrate the most college spirit.
• Listen carefully to the announcements on Wednesday for the trivia activity of the week.

Congratulations, Ms. Gorman, our Seguin librarian, who is recognized as Library Service’s Employee of the Month.

Swim Team Makes History & News

Congratulations to Seguin’s Swim team and Coach Weidemann for their historic performance at the State meet in Austin, TX. Competitors included Kolby L., Timothy H., DJ H., and Gerald H. The medley relay did not ultimately qualify for finals; however, during the preliminaries of the 500 freestyle, senior DJ H. finished 14th, which qualified him for finals. DJ’s swim was our school’s first individual swim ever at State, and the only swim from an AISD competitor the past two years.
