Seniors: You will fill out your yearbook Senior Index form in your English class on Friday, Mar. 22, for Green Day classes and on Monday, Mar. 25, for White Day classes. Prepare to fill out the form by bringing in a list of all Trinity activities in which you have been involved. Also write down honors you have received. If you wish, you may want to come up with a short quote for the index. DO NOT quote other students or faculty. Make sure the quote is appropriate, or it will not be included in the book. Please include the author of the quote.
Trinity’s Spring Red Cross Blood Drive will take place on Tuesday, March 26. Please consider donating the Gift off Life! You may donate if you are 16 years old or older. If you are 16, you will need your parent’s permission – there is a form you must pick up from Mrs. Mason in the Technology Center or from Mrs. Miller in Rm. F337, or at the sign up table during lunches. Signups will be taking place this week at lunch or you can sign up online at redcrossblood.org. Our drive is not limited to students. Parent, siblings, and friends of Trinity are also encouraged to donate – and don’t need an appointment – they can just drop in. One of our seniors will receive a college scholarship based on the number of pints of blood we collect. So, we are not only helping someone in the community, we are also helping one of our own!
