Self Defense Workshop at March Parents Club Meeting 
- Students Encouraged to Attend! Mark your calendar - Tuesday, March 8 at 7 pm 

The evening presentation will be conducted by Self Defense Coach Ed Kress who will offer a combination of lecture, role play, and some very basic physical self-defense training.  The focus will be to help students improve their personal and situational awareness and teach them how to identify and avoid potentially dangerous people, places and situations at school, home, work and on the street. The evening will include an interactive "give and take" with students, involving them in the presentation to model various street and campus situations which they are likely to encounter. All parents and their daughters are welcome. 

Parents Club Hosting "Cookie Walk" at the Spring Arts and Crafts Fair
The Parents Club is adding a new enhancement to the Spring Arts and Crafts Fair -- A Cookie Walk!  Customers will be able to buy a box and fill it with a variety of cookies.  In order for this to be a success, we need the help of all of our families and students to bake.  Each level has been assigned a different type of cookie:

Sophomores - anything BUT chocolate!  i.e. Jam Cookies, Lemon, Peanut Butter, Snickerdoodles
Juniors - Bars, Brownies, Snickerdoodles, Oatmeal, Kolackys
Seniors - Any time of Chocolate ie chips, Hershey Kiss, Cocoa

They are asking that each student bake at least two dozen cookies and drop them off anytime between Thursday, March 10th and Saturday March 12th by 10 am in the main office.  Please indicate students name, grade level and type of cookie on the package.  Happy Baking!
