Preble ABSS, the anti-bullying student support club, is meeting after school in the LMC on Tuesday, February 7th.  New Members Welcome!

ACT Word of the Day
Word Of The Day: Cacophony (noun) - Harsh, dissonant sounds.

Test Tip: If you regularly use a calculator in your mathematics work, use one you're familiar with when you take the mathematics test. Using a more powerful, but unfamiliar, calculator is not likely to give you an advantage over using the kind you normally use.

Blood Drive
Are you somebody’s type? Find out when you donate at tomorrow’s blood drive. Sign up today if you would like to receive an appointment. Sign up slips and details can be found in the main office. If you donate tomorrow, you will receive a Culver’s coupon for a free pint of ice cream and a $5 Amazon gift card will be sent to your email. Remember to bring your parent consent form tomorrow, if you are 16. All students must also bring two forms of ID that show their age. Students that already signed up for the blood drive should receive their appointment slip today during 3rd hour.  If you did not receive your appointment slip or have any questions, please email Mrs. Enderby.
