Good morning, Talawanda! Today is Monday October 1st, 2018

Congratulations to the Talawanda Marching Band on an outstanding performance Saturday evening.  The band traveled to the Lebanon Marching Band Invitational and competed in class AAAA.  They won best percussion and placed second overall in their class.  Great Job Band!

Talawanda Social Workers and Success Liaison are looking for volunteers to help organize the clothing closet at Marshall Elementary.  If you would like more information or are interested in this volunteer opportunity, please see Mrs. Workman or Mr. Davie in the guidance office.

Don’t just stuff your recently worn homecoming attire in your closet, never to be seen again!  Donate it!  Success Liaison Mrs. Workman and School Counselor Mrs. Peter are accepting donations of homecoming dresses, dress pants, dress shirts, ties, etc!

Braves for the Cure shirts will be sold in room 611 or during lunch, the cost for the shirts is 12 dollars.  All profits are donated to the Side Out Foundation and Luna Cares.  THS Volleyball and FCCLA will be hosting the dig for the cure today against Badin. Please plan to attend!

Attention second-year members of NHS: we will meet in Ms. Alfonsi’s room after school on Tuesday, October 2 to finalize plans for our induction ceremony.
