All Ambassadors who are Juniors please come to the Activity Center at the beginning of encore today (Tuesday) for a brief meeting with Mr. Mulvihill.
All students are reminded that there are to be NO books brought into the cafeteria or placed in the foyer outside the Griffin Cafe. Students, especially those in 1st and 4th lunch shifts, need to take their books to their classroom or to their lockers. Leaving books on the floor of the foyer is a fire hazard and can no longer be allowed to happen. This has to stop immediately.
