Clubs and Organizations:
With Christmas fast approaching and the weather getting colder, coats are a necessity. Key Club and the guidance office is starting a winter clothing drive beginning now until January 10th. Bring clean coats, hoodies, scarves, hats, gloves and small fleece blankets to your fourth period class. There will be boxes provided but until then please give them to your teachers. At the end of the drive, the amount of donations from each 4th period will be tallied up and there will be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner; receiving prizes. As you clean out your closets remember the less- fortunate this winter and donate your items to the Winter Coat Closet.
From the Red Cross Club: Thank you to everyone who helped make our first blood drive a success! Our goal was 56 units and 56 units is what we collected! Our next drive is February 9th. Members, our next meeting is this Thursday in Mrs. Cooter's room right after school. Please let Mrs. Cooter know if you are not able to make it!
The French Club will be selling Noel candy grams for 50 cents each all this week at lunch in front of the cafeteria and in the mornings in Mrs. Turner's room in the mornings. Come buy a friend a cute card and candy cane to show your holiday spirit.
This week is Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week. Join us today by adding to our "Chain of Hope" during your English Classes. Join us tomorrow as we attempt to go VIRAL with our Pinky Promises to stand up and speak out against Bullying!
