This is an opportunity to share your story and/or learn more about the different forms that harassment takes.

All proceeds will be donated to the French club activity fund. Email Jamie Simonson at to buy a ticket today! $10 adults/$5 students/free for kids under 5.

Did you know that total cost of a menstrual period (sanitary products, Advil, etc.) runs up to $20,000 in a lifetime?? 
Women's Rights Club is running a TAMPON AND PAD drive all month! All donations will benefit the Amherst Survival Center so that hygiene products can be available to all that need it!
Look for the signs and boxes located around the school to donate what you can, starting on Thursday. Donations should be in sealed boxes or packages. Drive will be up until the end of the month.


Remember, Thursday, tonight November 2, is FAFSA Night.  This is the time to get help from financial aid professionals.  Come to the cafeteria before 7:00.  Bring your laptop or tablet.  Bring your parents’ 2016 tax return and all W2s.  Leave well before 9:00 with your FAFSA completed.  Tonight, get FSAIDs  at, for both you and for your parent(s)

Attention French students:  If you are interested in hosting a French Exchange student from Valence, France next March and April, please stop by room 150 after school on Thursday for a very brief meeting (10 minutes maximum!).  Merci Madame Stankiewicz
