Good Blustery Afternoon,
I hope everyone enjoyed their cold and snowy weekend. I was able to give my snow blower the tune-up needed to be ready for the snow-magedon that is called for tonight.
Last Monday was the Wounded Warrior Volleyball fund-raiser. The National Honor Society hosted this volleyball fund-raiser for the Wounded Warriors Project. This event is the male version of Powder Puff Football except it is with volleyball. The senior boys defeated the junior boys in the best out of 5 volleyball matches. My understanding is that NHS collected over $300 dollars for the Wounded Warriors, great job!
Last Tuesday our Student Council hosted their first blood drive with Michigan Blood. According to Michigan Blood it was a very good turnout. We had 41 registered donors, between staff and students. For every registered donor, Michigan Blood gives $10 back to Student Council for their Blood Drive Student Scholarship, so this year Student Council will be awarded $410 dollars for their scholarship! Nice job and congratulations Student Council!
Last Wednesday the district staff participated in Jeans for Troops. Every staff member that donated $5 for Jeans for Troops could wear blue jeans to work on Wednesday November 12. This year we raised $420 for the GI Go Fund. The GI Go Fund helps raise money for soldiers and veterans, helping them to find jobs, go to college, get health care, find housing etc. I would like to personally thank those who contributed to this cause, thank you!
Tomorrow, Tuesday November 18, 2014, NHS will be hosting the 2014 National Honor Society Induction Ceremony. The ceremony will be starting at 7:00 in the high school commons area. Immediately following the ceremony will be a "meet and greet" dessert. Weather permitting; I hope to see you there.
Friday and Saturday evening at 7:30 pm, the Drama class will be demonstrating their skills and acting abilities as they will be performing sections of the "Crucible." The drama class will not be charging admission, but will be accepting donations to help recover some costs for scripts and materials. Please show your support and come watch!
Just a quick reminder, our first trimester ends next week. Our final exams will be Monday and Tuesday. Monday's exams will cover 1, 2 and 4th hours with students being released at 11:55. Tuesday's exams will cover 5 & 6th hours with student release being at 10:30. There will be no students reporting the rest of the week, so enjoy the extended Thanksgiving Weekend.
Lastly, this Thursday from 6:00-7:00 will be our November PPIP meeting in the high schools large conference room in the main office. I promise to be there and on time!
Have a warm and safe week!
