FBLA-Opioid Epidemic Awareness

FBLA is working to spread opioid epidemic awareness this month.  For more information on how to take part in spreading awareness, go to: www.stopopioidoverdose.org.

Prescription drugs are often misused due to increased availability and easy access to a variety of unused medications in the home.  Dispose extra unwanted or expired drugs safely and securely at a collection drop box at the Derry Police Department or a police department nearest you.

Another week, another exciting Domino competition! Stop by the Library or Media Center to practice for our second Domino Challenge, to be held this Friday, February 23. Like last week, there will be practices every day in all periods to prepare for Friday’s competition. Visit the Library or Media Center to up your game and your chance to win!

Pantene Beautiful Lengths

Every year Londonderry High School has hundreds of students who volunteer to donate their hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, a cause to create hope to women battling cancer.  If Pinkerton can beat Londonderry in football every year, than we should be able to get that many donors, too.  See Student Council members or Mr. Breda (room 306) to sign up today.

Open House for Griffin Morse-Wed

We are planning an informal "Open House" for Griffin Morse tomorrow afternoon in the Astro Cafe.  Please feel free to stop by anytime between 2:00 and 3:30 p.m. to say goodbye and wish Griffin well!
