    The holidays are a really important time for blood donations!

    This year Student Senate will be hosting a blood drive on December 22nd in the Field House. The donations are going to Rock River Valley Blood Center. To sign up, you must be at least 16. If you are 16, there are permission slips you can pick up from Ms. Farmer in B313 or Ms. George in B209. The process takes about 20 minutes, and you can save up to three lives! Remember, when you donate, you get a treat. You can sign up in the library this week and next week.


    Attention all Key Club members: We still have some blankets to cut and build this week, so if you have time to make one this week, please stop by Mrs. Poepping's classroom on Thursday (December 14th) or the following Monday after school. (That's December 18th.) All blankets need to be made no later than the morning of Wednesday, December 20th so that we can deliver the blankets by Thursday, December 21st. We will also have our holiday potluck on Monday, December 18th. Please see Mrs. Poepping in C201 to sign up!
