Penny Wars are on! Beginning Monday and through the March, MS students are asked to place pennies into their grade level bins  located front of the Campus Ministry office. Each penny counts as a point.  Putting paper money or nickels, dimes and quarters into the bins for the other grades subtracts from their total!  Please bring in your change and participate in this healthy competition to support the Harlem Children’s Zone.

Reminder to English+ Participants- our Q3 meeting is next Wednesday 3/20 8-9am or Monday, 3/25, 3-4pm. Be sure to come prepared with your interview. See Dr. Zito or Ms. Michaelsen with questions.

 Middle Schoolers are invited to lap swim, participate in open swim or use the diving boards. Get your pool bag and meet in the lobby at 2:50 pm to walk down with intramurals to the pool

Students wishing to go to the Learning Center for homework help with NHS tutors should meet in the main office at 3:00 pm.

The winners of this week Student Council Riddle are Angel Heredia and Alex Moldovean. Come collect your treat at the Main Office during snack


PENNY WARS begin on Monday March 18th! This is a friendly competition between students and teachers during the month of March to benefit the Harlem Children’s Zone. Through the end of March students can place coins in bins located in front of the Campus Ministry office on the first floor of Br. Ben Hall. Bins will be labeled with each grade! Each penny counts as a point.  Putting paper money or coins larger than a penny into the bins for the other grades subtracts that amount from their point total!
