Nov. 15, 2012 Thursday B Day
We want to remind students that they are to stay inside the cafeteria at lunch until they are dismissed by the teachers on duty. We have had too many students leaving the cafeteria lately and roaming the halls.
Second, a reminder that chewing gum is not allowed in the building and that it is a $5.00 fine if you are caught with it. We have had too much gum stuck to furniture and in carpets lately and this needs to stop. Teachers have been instructed to turn in names to violators to Coach Brown in the Main Office for the fine.
Finally, a reminder that students are to go to an area during Encore and stay in that place until the conclusion of Encore unless they have a note from a teacher, in advance, telling them to report at a specific time or if they are first attending Communion Service in the Marianist Lobby. We have a lot of students using Encore for making up tests and getting assistance from teachers and all the movement in the hallways is a distraction.
Holy Trinity Thanksgiving Collection: Our annual collection has begun and runs through November 20. We will be collecting money at all lunch shifts to benefit the food pantry at Holy Trinity parish in Baden. If you are interested in volunteering to collect money at lunch, see Mr. Stevison in the Library for instructions. On Thanksgiving morning (November 22) we need volunteers (families are welcome) to deliver Thanksgiving meals to families served by the food pantry. We begin with 9:00 Mass and deliver the meals between 10:30 and 12:30 that day. Everyone is welcome to join us. Please be generous -- this project helps many people have a holiday meal they might not have had otherwise.
Monday we will be conducting a food drive for the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Food Pantry. Any student who brings in 3 canned goods can take part in a dress down day.
Griffin Theatre will open its 2012-13 season this evening at 7:30 pm with the comedy thriller COUNT DRACULA. Count Dracula will be presented tonight, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 pm and on Sunday afternoon at 2:00 pm. Reserved Tickets are $5; $4 for students and senior citizen.

This holiday season Vianney will have a bin available for recycling Christmas lights. It seems inevitable the each year some strands of lights refuse to light. Please inform you parents that those lights can be recycled at Vianney. Last year, 64,000 pounds of lights were recycled. Please help rescue your burnt out lights from the landfill by placing them in our collection bin.
The group that recycles the lights needs volunteers to distribute the collection bins after school this week and the Sat after Thanksgiving. If you would like to volunteer see Mr. C. Walsh in room 305.
The Robotics club will have a short meeting this Friday afternoon after school in room 207 to discuss implementation of our new LabView software, and to come up with fundraising ideas for the TETRIX resource kit required to build a competitive robot.
