Then come to the COACH informational meeting on Thursday, March 10 at 3:20 pm in L101.

STUDENTS: For almost 60 years, the Westerner student newspaper has been the voice of students at Maine West. Covering everything from Maine West events to student talents to national and global issues. The award-winning Westerner keeps students informed about their world, whether it is the orchesis show or the spring play, the basketball team or the math team, the presidential election or climate change, the dominance of Netflix or the reality of the gender gap. If you would like to help lead the school and be a part of next year's Westerner staff, applications are due March 14 for writers, photographers, artists and editors. You can get an application in the Westerner office -- A200 -- or online at tinyurl.com/WesternerApp.

STUDENTS: Calling all those who are told they have a 'face for radio.' WMTH is looking for after school DJs. This is your chance to be on the air between 3:15 and 5 pm on Mondays after school. Visit Mr. Shaphren or Maddie Kulbersh in R209 for more information and an application.

SENIORS: If you are going to GradNite, it is time to pay for the rest of the trip. Only $25 more left to pay before you can ride coasters with your best friends. You must pay by March 15th and also turn in your signed field trip form in the bookstore.

UKULELE CLUB: If you play the Ukulele and are interesting in getting together with other Ukulele enthusiasts to play and listen to music, then Ukulele Club is the place for you. Come to the meeting in H104 this Friday, March 11th at 7:10 in the morning.

Return permission slips to Mrs. Hendrickson or Mr. McClure by Thursday, March 10 to guarantee a spot. After that day spaces will be opened up to World Cultures Students.

VOICE FOR THE NAMELESS:  Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, just to name a few of the platforms of social media. The world of communication has been revolutionized by social media and that impact has also been felt in human rights work. Social media can mobilize large numbers of people in a short amount of time to rise up and take action for a cause. It has been the focus of government action in some countries to shut it down. Come and learn more about the use and impact of social media on human rights this Thursday at the Voice for the Nameless meeting at 7:00 am in H106. Food is provided.
