FRIDAY:  Minion Day!  Grade 12s will be making lunches and serving their "GRU".
In the Block 2 fund-raising challenge, presently,  Mr Ohl's class is in the lead, Ms Tong's class is second, and Ms  Linger's class is third.   TODAY is the last day for Block 2 donations.  If you have a block 2 study block, there is a donation box in the office!
