Blood-Drive Sign-UpsĀ 

HOSA is hosting their second blood drive this year on December 5th! We had 24 total donations last time which was above average from the year before. We are pushing for a total of 81 for the school year, which means we need 57 more  in order to award a $750 scholarship to a senior. Please help us out by giving the gift of life this season. 

Let Ms. Wolford know when you are able to donate and she will put you down on the sign-up list! (They start at 9 am and run through 1:45 in the high school gym foyer). 




The 2017 Yearbooks are in. If you ordered one, see Mrs. Appleman in Room 103 to pick it up. If you had not ordered one, a limited number are available to purchase. See Mrs. Appleman for details.
