    By: Austin Ward, News editor

    SCHEDULE FOR DECEMBER 15-19, 2008

    CHRISTMAS VACATION

    School resumes Jan. 12.

    CELL PHONE POLICY REMINDER
    Cell phones are not to be seen in any of the buildings on campus between the hours of 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., regardless of any reason. They will be taken away and kept by an administrator until after 3 p.m. However, students may use cell phones outside the building or in the high school office, with permission, during school hours.

    WSL TALENT SHOW AUDITIONS
    The auditions for the 2009 WSL talent show will be held Feb. 2 and 3 at lunch. However, anyone interested in auditioning must prepare during Christmas vacation. All acts must be pre-approved by the administration before the closed auditions. Please bring a printed copy of any song lyrics to the auditions and sign up in front of the high school office. Three acts from Fresno Christian will be chosen to compete in the regional talent show.

    EVANGEL HOME CONTRIBUTIONS NEEDED
    A local women’s shelter, the Evangel Home, near downtown Fresno, is in need of food, clothes and gifts for the 20 children who live there. The homeless shelter has been in constant operation since 1955 and is feeling the economic pinch.

    The Feather staff would like to organize a grocery gift card drive to help restock the program’s kitchen. Evangel volunteer organizer Joyce Williams reports low stock on a number of staples and necessities.

    Those willing to donate a Save Mart gift card or an unwrapped gift, please contact Feather adviser Greg Stobbe or check the needs list in the computer lab. The Evangel Home’s annual Christmas party is Dec. 17 and donations should be in place before that date.

    Williams can be reached at the Evangel Home at 559.493.8607 or e-mail Stobbe at [email protected].

    Any student attending the Night of the Stars must turn in a permission slip when they purchase their tickets. Permission slips were handed out in English classes.
