Next Tuesday, November 8th, we will celebrate our democracy and Election Day with KidsVoting! Please stop by the Private Dining Room between classes, during breaks and lunch, and during student choice to vote! The AP Gov students and ELP classes will also be collecting exit poll data. In order to fully celebrate our right to vote and democratic values, please wear your red, white, and blue that day! Since we are a precinct for regular voting and KidsVoting, students may not wear political shirts supporting particular candidates and/or issues since electioneering activities are not allowed too close the voting polls.

Halloween is coming up quickly, and House Animus wants to make sure that our armed forces can get some treats too. The House is teaming up with Operation Gratitude in their Candy Buyback program  to collect any leftover candy you may have from Halloween (including chocolate, but no Pixy Stix please) and unused dental hygiene products. There will be collection boxes at the front and back entrances to the school  for everyone and one for teachers in the teacher workroom. All donations will be accepted until November 11 (Veterans Day). If you have any questions, please email (Animus Service Prefect) or (Animus Head Girl). Thank you for your support!!
