THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE
It’s that time of year again! Join Lasallian Youth as we run our Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive to benefit the food pantry at St. Vincent DePaul Parish in Lincoln Park. Help make a difference in the lives of the local poor who do not have much this holiday season. Last year we collected an astounding 2100 pounds of food, but we can do even better this year. Please place your nonperishable food items in the white boxes in your A Period until November 20. The A Period that collects the most food items will receive an out of uniform pass. Let’s do our best to really make a difference this holiday season!
3D AIRPLANE CONTEST
Do you like making paper airplanes? Then accept the challenge to stretch your paper airplane creativity to the next level. Design a plane using the 3D printer that can actually fly! Your design could earn you fabulous gift card prizes! Please note, the competition date has been moved to Wednesday, November 29th. See Ms. Esola for more details.
Any student or teacher wishing to learn how to use the 3D printer, come join our club that meets every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday during lunch periods. Bring your lunch to the Library Media Center Maker Lab and we will teach you the design program. No sign-up necessary; just come with lunch and a creative spirit!
The Frosh/Soph Book Discussion Group meets this Thursday during lunch periods to discuss The Face on the Milk Carton. Remember to bring your book and lunch to the Library Reading Loft during your lunch period. Ms. Brask will provide dessert.
This Friday, November 10th is the observance of Veterans Day. As a sign of Shamrock gratitude to all active and retired United States Armed Forces personal, we will have a short ceremony immediately after school Friday at the west corner flag pole. All are invited as we take time to remember the men and women past and present who have served our country. If you have any questions, see Ms. McMahon in Room 104.
