StuGo is partnering with the East Valley Women’s League in collecting donations for the Cinderella Affair project. The Cinderella Affair project collects new and gently used formal wear and then gives those donated gowns to teen girls who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford a prom dress. Please help every girl have a chance to attend prom by donating your new or gently used evening gowns/prom-type dresses, dress shoes, handbags, and costume jewelry. You can drop off your donated items in the front office. If you have any questions, see Ms. Winget in 5206.
The Teen Advisory Board is excited to announce its FOURTH installment of the Book Discussion Series! NORSE MYTHOLOGY is Neil Gailman's creative retelling of the the old stories which influenced our philosophical studies and modern culture. Read about Ymir who birthed the Giants from whom Odin, Loki and Thor were descendants and hear about their legendary exploits which would eventually lead to their demise-Ragnarok. If you would like to participate in a one-time during-lunch book discussion which will take place on Thursday, March 7th, stop by Palomino Library to grab a copy of the book from the School Librarian Christina Brady.
