There is a profusion of unclaimed items on the lost and found tables in front of the cafeteria.  Please study the tables and see if any of these items are yours. Any deserted items will be donated to a local charity if not claimed.  


If  you signed up for the Moe's lunch, be sure to come to Sra Screen's room during activity period!


Our annual blood drive saw 67 registered donors, 14 medical rejections, and 53 actual donors. That equates to approximately 159 lives that will potentially be saved due to the selflessness of both the adult and student donors. That is no small thing! Many were fearful of donating, yet overcame their fears to do so. It is to those people that we give our heartfelt gratitude. The definition of a hero is one who does what is right, even in the face of fear. We experienced numerous heroes on Thursday. For that, I am profoundly grateful.
