GHS:  Here is another opportunity to make a difference in someone else’s life this Christmas.  There is a young man by the name of William who lives in Blaine Washington.  See the thing is, William is an amazing brother, son, student AND a person with severe Autism.  He is non-verbal but can communicate in other ways.  So here is where you come in.  William had a very different and New Christmas list this year.  All he wants for Christmas is mail.  Yea that right…mail.  This request became known to us through the organization called “Autism Speaks.”  So our goal GHS is to send at least 100 letters to William.  Letters can be dropped off in Student Services and our PRIDE class will package all of them up to send to him.  Let’s make a difference and start writing those letters GHS.  And don’t forget to get those letters ready for our veterans too and thank them for their services to our country.  The Wounded Warrior letter campaign goes until Dec. 17th and those letters can be turned in to Mrs. Breitling-Gray.
Dance contracts for Crystal Ball need to be turned in by Thursday.  Picture envelopes are also available in Student Services.  Pictures will be from 5-7PM in the gym.
