Just a few weeks left in the pull tab collection. Class of 2018 is still the only class to fill two water jugs.  What class will catch them?

STUDENTS:  Every young person has dreams of who they will become. Yet, millions of young people face the unstable circumstances of poverty. Often this means they can’t go to school. YOU CAN HELP.  Join the students participating in Global Concerns Classrooms next Wednesday from 7:45-8:30 in the LRC by making a hand to lend a hand. We will be making paper cut of hands and decorating them.  For every hand you make and send in, a charity will donate $1.90. This money will help kids go to school Nicaragua and Indonesia.

STUDENTS:  We are asking all students at Maine West, East and South to take a quick survey before Sunday evening to give us your thoughts on grading practices, re-takes and re-do's, etc. Because this was the first year of trialing some new practices, we want your input on what you thought!
