Heart Health Awareness Week
All week long there is a grade level competition to see which grade raises the most money per person; there will be cans in the cafeteria for the donations. Grade level that raises the most per person will receive 5 extra minutes of lunch each day during homecoming week. If we raise $3500 as a school, I will once again get my head shaved, as I did last year for this same fundraiser.
Wednesday will be a wear your red to show you have a heart dress down day. In order to participate in this dress down day, you must purchase a dress down ticket during lunch in the cafeteria on Monday or Tuesday. The rules for this dress down day are the same rules used for Maroon and White dress down days, except you are to wear red. You must purchase a dress down ticket on Monday or Tuesday during lunch in the cafeteria to participate in this dress down day. You will turn your dress down ticket in to your first period teacher on Wednesday, those dressed down without a ticket get sent down to the office and will either pay (double for not doing so on time) or get sent home for being out of uniform. The donation to dress down on Wednesday is $2.
Also at lunch on Wednesday we will have a guess how many gummy bears are in the jar competition, each guess will cost a quarter, winner gets the jar of candy.
Thursday is the blood drive. Our goal is to have 50 donors. Parents, teachers, students and anyone else interested can donate. Only stipulations are that you must be at least 16 years of age and 130 or 17 years of age and 100 pounds.
Friday is a free maroon and white dress down day, with a pep rally and football game versus Archbishop Hannan at7:00 PM at Tad Gormley Stadium.
