Hopefully you've seen the flyers posted around school about the PJ Day next Wednesday!!  Our Key Club and Builders Club would like to help the people of Haiti whose country was just rocked by an earthquake and ravaged by a tropical storm. and we need your help!  Please wear pajamas next Wednesday and bring at least a dollar to donate to Haiti.  When you give your donation, you will be given a sticker to wear.  If you don't want to wear pajamas, we hope you will donate to this cause anyway.  Thank you in advance for your help!!

 

Key Club Members - what an amazing turnout for our meeting yesterday!  It's so wonderful to hear your excitement about helping out with all the things we are doing already!  One request, though.  Please do not sign up to volunteer at an event until you know for 100% sure that you are able to be there.  Mrs. Rea submits your names to the committee planning the event, and it looks bad when people do not show up.  Plus, you are taking away the chance for someone else to work.  So please be kind and respectful when signing up!!
