Message from Mr. Bruder - Following is a note that I shared with our students.  " We appreciate your support of our Wildcat athletic teams this winter.  We hope you can come to as many events as possible.  However, we have had an increase in elementary and middle school students exhibiting the following unacceptable behaviors:  running around the high school building, playing in the wrestling room, hanging out down the hallway by the auditorium, jumping/climbing on the items in the wrestling room hallway and bottle flipping in the cafeteria.  We ask that you sit in the bleachers, preferably with your parents.  Go to the concession stand and restroom during quarter breaks, halftime or between games.  While the game is going on, please be seated in the gym and cheering for the Wildcats.  Thank you for your cooperation and Go Cats!"  - Mr. Thomas, Humboldt High School Activities Director
