I am happy to report that the girls’ soccer senior night was just as successful as the boys’!
The girls won against Homer, 3-1. Haley Carroll, an eighth-grader, scored two of the goals and Cara Bricker, a junior, scored another. The game was quite exciting but yet again bittersweet, as the team lost six seniors.
If you are looking to promote a great cause, the Youth Advisory Council, or Y.A.C., is taking donations for the Colombian orphanages they sponsor. Sophia Giovannetti and Amelia Coakley are two seniors accepting these donations.
They are asking for lightly used summer clothing, as it is normally above 80 degrees where the children live, and simple necessities including toothpaste, deodorant and any other items that we are accustomed to in our day-to-day lives.
The children will be receiving these items for Christmas this year.
Don’t forget about the fall play this coming Friday and Saturday. Everyone is getting excited to see “What the Bellhop Saw.” If you’ve forgotten, the play will be presented at 7 p.m. both days. Seniors and children under 12 receive a discount!
Club officers and treasurers met on Oct. 16 to discuss proper accounting procedures.
The procedures this year are much more efficient and organized, with each club or activity receiving its own binder in which they can record fundraising and the like.
Clubs, with their newly easily accessible information, will be able to give advice to other clubs about what fundraisers worked the best for them.
A new requirement this year is clubs must prove that they have voted and decided on a specific purpose for donations they have received.
For example, the Environmental Club has just voted to use a donation it received to go towards putting in another eco-friendly water fountain.
These water fountains have a slot for you to put your water bottle in to refill it, and they display the number of water bottles that they have helped the school save.
The club also hopes to start raising money this year to help put a few of these water fountains in our elementary schools.
The spirit of charity has been rampant lately at the high school, and it has really created a very optimistic environment.
The Varsity and JV Girls’ volleyball teams held their annual “Dig Pink” game last Thursday. The game’s goal was to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness and from what I hear, they were very successful.
I am excited to see all of the clubs and activities thrive this year. Continue to get involved!
