Donating, Many Ways

Day 16: Donate what you no longer have use for. Be it clothes that don’t fit to second-hand stores, books you've already read to teachers, spare change to the Salvation Army bell-ringer, time to your loved ones, or the like. If there are younger children in your family, and you have toys from your childhood you no longer use that are packed away somewhere, see if they’re interested in them. Speaking of donating, if it isn't too late consider donating blood tomorrow during the blood drive, or at least thank those who do.  

First off, enjoy your delay, thanks to the ton of snow from the weekend and the chill! Sometimes Ohio weather has benefits.

Today, varsity basketball girls takes on Carey in an away game at 6 p.m.. Also, there will be Christmas caroling at the Kiwanis Club location at St. Andrews United Methodist Church through the music department from 7 to 8 p.m. tonight.

Starting this week, students can begin voting for a toll of 50 cents (payable to Student Council members) for their favorite ugly Christmas sweater the teachers wore. The money made is donated towards the Jennifer Masters Scholarship, and the pictures of the sweaters can be found along the trophy case in the cafeteria. Tomorrow, the blood drive takes place so if you’re participating or bringing refreshments for the event, don’t forget. Thursday will be picture day for all clubs/sports, senior favorites, and the 13 year picture so make sure you look your best!
