Daily Announcements 2.26.19

Bonjour, RedHawks. Would you like to be an ambassador for your school by welcoming a French visitor for 10 days in April ? Even if you are not a French student, you can still show me or one of my friends what it is like to live in America. Who knows ? Maybe we will become life-long friends and you can come stay with me some day. See your foreign language teachers if you have any questions.

Don’t forget the book sale is running again in the ARC and it’s a BIG one. All monies go towards 1 Book 1 Marist club. We have lots of:

  • Teen fiction
  • Memoirs and History books
  • Cookbooks and Adult Fiction

Treat yourself to a good Spring Break read. Stop by soon before the good stuff goes!
