WENDY NEDDS YOUR HELP IN THE CAFETERIA:
We have made great strides with making our school a more environmentally friendly place this year. At lunch time, Wendy has been spending her time sorting through the bins, and picking silverware out of the compost and trash.
* COMPOSTING (green bin with orange): Please put ONLY FOOD AND PAPER
* RECYCLING IN THE CAFE: All recycling must be EMPTY and CLEAN. If you are questioning an item, it is better to throw it in the trash than to contaminate the recycling.
* REAL SILVERWARE: Please DON'T THROW IT AWAY, and please don't take it out of the cafe. If you must take a fork to go, there are some plastic forks available
Join us this Friday for another Westbrook High School Civil Rights Team sponsored film.
In honor and recognition of the conclusion of Women's History Month, we will be watching Hidden Figures at 3pm on Friday, March 29th in Room 317.
All are welcome, there will be snacks and drinks!
“Many of those who will have been directly affected by this shooting may be migrants to New Zealand, they may even be refugees here. They have chosen to make New Zealand their home, and it is their home. They are us. The person who has perpetuated this violence against us is not.” -New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern
If you would like to show support in light of the recent violence in New Zealand for the Muslim Communities here in Southern Maine, please join us in writing letters to show our support, solidarity and appreciation. Address your letter to the Maine Muslim Community Center and drop it off in Room 317 by the end of the day Friday. If you would like to donate to support communities in New Zealand, click here.
