Daily Announcements for November 16, 2017

Students please be aware that today, we are checking lockers. You will be called to the Deans Office if you do not have a lock on your locker or if there is more than one person using your locker.  If you do not have a lock, please come down to the Deans Office to purchase a new one. At the start of the school year the first lock was provided at no charge. If you need a replacement, it will cost you $10, which you can charge to your account. If it is evident that you are sharing a locker, it may lead to a two or three hour detention. 

There will be a college representative here from Blackburn College on Monday. If you would like to learn more about Blackburn College, sign up in the Guidance Office.

Do you want a gift card…a special lunch for you and a friend…or a cut the lunch line pass for the rest of the school year? Best Buddies is running a non-perishable food drive. Bring in canned or boxed food to the Guidance Office during the month of November to enter into a raffle to win one of these great prizes. Every time you donate, you will have another entry, the more times you donate the more chances you have to win a prize!

Monday, November 20th at 8 a.m., GSA is having a short vigil in the LRC courtyard for Transgender Day of Remembrance. The purpose of “Transgender Day of Remembrance” is to memorialize those who lost their lives to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. This year there have been at least 27 deaths in the US alone. We take this day to remember those who have passed and always, spread love, be yourself, and keep in mind that it gets better.
