Here's your news and information for the week of September 10.


Just like an NPR pledge drive, we'll remain cheery and enthusiastic, but we can't stop until we've funded the basic needs of our Humanities Academy.  And then there's stuff we hope for too (such as those Chromebooks for the 7th and 8th grade).  We ask because we have to ask; there are serious budget gaps.  Any donation is a generous donation and gratefully received.  If you are full of good intentions but a bit of a lollygagger, here's what you do:

 • Give Online through Friend of Reed, making sure to select "HUMANITIES" from the General Donation drop down menu

• Give by Check by simply filling out the Annual Giving Form, then return to the Main Office.


If you ordered a T-shirt at registration, you may now pick it up from your English teacher.  Bring $20.  Extras are available as well.
