    SISTER2SISTER PROGRAM
    The Sister2Sister program signups are underway. This program pairs junior high girls with a high school girl to be their friend and role model in an effort to facilitate the transition from elementary to junior high. As such, “big sisters” are not primarily intended to provide counseling or give unwarranted advice.

    Junior high girls interested in the program must complete and submit a form with parental permission. Forms are available in the JH office and must be returned by Oct. 24. For more information on Sister to Sister, contact Molly Sargent at 299-1695 ext. 126.

    ENTERTAINMENT BOOKS
    Entertainment Books are one of the best fundraisers for your students and for the school. The cost is $25 and students can save up to 50% on restaurants, movies and activities.

    After the sale of the first book, junior and senior high students can designate $7 per book sold to fund their school activities, such as sports, drama, band, choir and CSF.

    For those who send 5 to 10 e-mails to their friends about the entertainment books, students can win a game download or a chance to win a Nintendo Wii.

    If anyone has questions, call Michelle Regnerus at 299-1695, ext. 125, or e-mail her at [email protected].
