STAFF AND STUDENTS:  Child Care Club is coordinating the Salvation Army Angel Tree Gift program. We hope that Maine West staff and students will help Des Plaines children in need. Please stop by the main office or the preschool room if you would like to take a tag and purchase a gift for a child. We are accepting unwrapped gifts now through Friday, December 9th. Gifts can be turned in with the tag attached to the main office or preschool. Thank you for your warmth and generosity this holiday season.

JUNIORS:   For the second year in a row the junior class will be collecting toys and money for children at Ronald McDonald House Charities.  Starting today through December 2nd, we would deeply appreciate it if all juniors would bring in a new toy or a money donation to your U.S. History teacher. Currently, Mr. Rosenberg's 9th hour class is in the lead.


We will have a few colleges visiting this week.

Today: Chamberlain College of Nursing will be here 8th.
Tuesday: MacMurray College will be here 6th and North Park University will be here 7th.

Seniors, remember to submit your FAFSA if you have not yet done so. Also, we recommend that you complete your college applications now. There are more deadlines coming up at the beginning of December.
