WE “MOUST-ACHE” (MUST ASK) YOU A QUESTION! The yearbook staff will be out on campus at lunch next Thursday to ask you a question. We will be giving away Moustache stickers and temporary tattoos to all students who will answer a quick survey question and have their photo taken. We want to feature as many students as we can. See you Thursday at lunch.
FUNDRAISER: Attention Key Clubbers and Santana Students! There is a Rachel House fundraiser drive in the library and we need your help. Bring old blankets, gloves, jackets, scarves, and any other warm items to donate to your community. Also, Blood Drive permission slips will be collected on Friday the 5th in period 5.
CLEAN WATER CLUB: If you think you are too old for a picture with Santa, how about a picture with Santa under water in scuba gear. Not only will you get a memorable photo, it’s a fun way to try out scuba if you never have before. Come to the Clean Water Club meeting today to find out how. We meet every Friday at lunch in room S-8 and anyone is welcome to join us.
ENJOY VOLUNTEERING? Like getting involved with the community? Come to Key Club on Thursdays in room S2 at lunch.
MISSING TEXTBOOKS: Our latest data shows that Santana is currently missing about $50,000 in textbooks, many of which are at your homes, in your bedrooms gathering dust. This is not acceptable Sultan Scholars! So here’s the deal…ALL textbooks need to be turned in, replaced, or cleared by the beginning of next semester, that’s January 26th. Any textbooks that are not cleared will have a daily fine, just like a library book. Large published textbooks will be charged $1 and the smaller novels used in English classes will be charged .25 cents daily. If the book is returned after 40 school days, the daily fine will be waived, but a replacement/processing fee will be charged. This fee will be $5 for the novels, and $20 for the large published textbooks. These fines will be permanent on your account until they are cleared.
SKATEBOARD LOCKS: Remove your locks from the skateboard/bike racks each night. They will be cut off.
ATTENTION STUDENTS: Peer mediators are here and available for you. This year’s mediators are Brielle Wilkerson, Tara Kyne and Deanna Aguiar. They can help you resolve conflicts between you and someone that you are having a disagreement with. They are also available if you just need another student to talk to. So, if you need help resolving issues between friends, you can grab a request slip in any classroom or in the guidance office.
PEACE COUNCIL: Join Peace Council and make a difference. Meetings are Wednesdays at lunch in room 105.
