Sign up during lunch for the blood drive on March 3rd.  This year New Athens high School has been chosen to be part of newer technology that allows us to collect double the amount of red blood cells and the donor receives their own plasma and platelets back.  It’s a great process that leaves most donors feeling better than a usual whole blood donation.  There are some more stringent criteria though, when you sign up today check to see if you qualify!  Let’s try to beat last years drive of 70 units of blood.


Mrs. Wolter needs to meet with seniors interested in scholarship opportunities on Monday during activity period in room 202.


School will be dismissed today at 12:12 for school improvement activities.
