Tomorrow is Trinity’s Annual Fall Red Cross Blood Drive. Here are a few reminders for those of you who will be donating, please listen up.
If you are 16 years old, make sure that you have received a parent permission form, have it signed by your parents, and turned in to Mrs. Mason in the Technology Center on the bottom floor of Old Trinity Hall or to Ms. Miller in Room F337. If you have not turned it in yet, bring it to the drive tomorrow, or you will not be allowed to donate. If you did not receive a form, or lost it, stop by the Tech Center and pick up a new one from Mrs. Mason.
- Make sure you drink a lot of water starting now – and eat a good breakfast tomorrow morning.
- Bring a picture ID with you and bring your donor card if you have one!
- During 1st or 2nd block, someone will deliver your appointment card to you. Hold onto this – show your teacher to leave class when it is time for you to donate, and bring the card with you to Shamrock Gym. NEW THIS YEAR – YOU ALSO NEED TO MAKE AN E-HALL PASS FROM WHERE YOU ARE TO Mrs. Mason!!
- Stop by your locker and deposit your laptop, tablet, calculator and books. We cannot be responsible for personal items in the gym.
- Come to the main entrance of Shamrock Gym. You will find a greeter table inside the gym. You will sign in, and begin the process here. NEW THIS YEAR – MAKE SURE MRS. MASON OR MS. MILLER PINS YOU IN ON THE E-HALL PASS.
- You will be guided thru a series of paperwork and information stations, the beds where you donate, and the “canteen”, where you will receive juice and snacks to help revive you!
- You must then stop at the check-out table to sign out. You will receive your card back, and YOU WILL BE PINNED AS LEAVING THE BLOOD DRIVE ON THE E-HALL PASS. You must then go to the Student Affairs Office where they will end your pass to the blood drive, and give you a late admit pass to go back to class.
- That’s it – The whole process should take about an hour, maybe a little longer, depending on how many donors are in line. The actual blood draw time is usually only about 10 minutes.
Thank you for giving of yourself! See you tomorrow!
A note from Mr. Zoeller: congratulations to all who made honor roll in the 1st Quarter of this year. An astounding 66% of the school made honor roll, the second highest total in school history. Senior led the way, with 72% of seniors making honor roll. There were 252 of you who made Principal’s List set a school record. Mr. Zoeller is inviting all freshmen and sophomores for some delicious sheet cake during advising Thursday. Juniors and seniors are invited to for a slice or two next Tuesday, Nov. 13. Congratulations to all who earned honor roll in the first quarter. Keep up the hard work. Second quarter is shorter, so be sure stay aware of your assignments so you can earn this honor again for the 2nd Quarter.
