It’s a “D-C” Day.

Happy Birthday to Alison Franciosa, Amie MacPherson and Mariah Martens.

Welcome to the following guest staff today: Zak Likely for MaryEllen Lowther, Donna White for Bethany MacLeod(pm), Wanda Cheverie for Yvonne Higgins, Sara Prosser for Pam Harris and Tracy Schurman for Dawn Martell.

Today’s Highlights:

  • There will be a meeting today at 11:45 sharp in Room #85 for all CSLC 2012 participants and then at 12:00 sharp, we will meet with all participants for the CSLC 2013.
  • Students who wish make a request for the “Friday Song” may do so by submitting a copy of the song lyrics with the student’s name at the top to Dawn or Kelly in the main office. Submissions are due each week by Thursday at noon.
  • From your Student Council: This year’s Student Council has ‘adopted’ a sponsor child this year. His name is Juan Daniel Moran Venegas and he is 7 years old. He is from Nicaragua, and his family’s income is very unstable. With our sponsorship, we will be able to provide Juan with an education and clean water. $40 is all we need to donate each month, and it will change Juan’s life. Student Council members will be asking the students to donate their spare change every few weeks. This money will make a huge difference in this young boy’s life. Thank you.
