Good morning, Talawanda! Today is Wednesday, August 22, 2018

Do you enjoy helping in the community?  Or are you looking for a way to become more involved?  Or even just looking for service hours?  If so, join the Talawanda Key Club.  We do many service projects throughout the year and will be holding our first meeting on Monday, August 27th right after school in Mr. Ruther’s room, 423.  Come and learn about the club and meet the officers.

There will be an FFA meeting today from 1:45 – 2:30 in the PAC.  All FFA members are welcome to attend.  There will be pizza afterwards.  Go aggies!

Do you have old books from when you were younger that you don’t read anymore?  Instead of just throwing them out, donate them!  This is a district wide book drive sponsored by the Butler Tech/Talawanda FCCLA Chapter.  Anyone from any of these schools can donate.  You can drop the books off to any of the Talawanda School’s Main Offices, in the designated boxes!  The Book Drive will start on August 27th and run until September 7th!  All of the books will go to our local Children’s Hospitals.  If you have any questions feel free to ask Braelynn Wagers, Hannah Cress or Mrs. Gregory in room 611.

The drama club will be having an informational meeting after school on September 6 in the THS Performing Arts Center.  Anyone who is interested in seeing what goes in to the fall play both onstage and backstage should come and see what drama is all about.  If you cannot make it to the meeting and still want to audition, they will be after school on September 11.  If you have any other questions, please see Ms. Hudson or Mr. Steffen in room 317.

Attention National Honor Society Seniors:  Please read your email from Ms. Alfonsi regarding Marshall Mentors.
