A big thanks to Monika Romo, Irene Govea, and Mr. Westerhaus’ sophomore homeroom for raising some money and meeting their Lenten Commitment. Just two more days this week to get your bowl in and eliminate a detention from your record!
Celebrate the end of the week tomorrow with a Dress Down day and support a great cause at the same time! Today is the last day to purchase an orange awareness ribbon pass from a Book Club member at lunch for $2 in support of the Love is Louder foundation and self-injury awareness month. Don’t forget to pin the ribbon to your shirt or lanyard so you don’t lose it; you must have it on you tomorrow in order to dress down.
Seniors, this is your one-day Prom payment warning! To avoid a second late fee, your $25 payment is due to Ms. Zeno before the end of the day tomorrow.
