THIS WEEK IN HUMANITIES...

Here's your news and information for the week of September 25.


A "POKE" FOR ANNUAL GIVING...

Perhaps your grandmother used the phrase "its better than a poke in the eye with a big stick." No? Well, OK. We have 325 Humanities Academy families.  Some have donated, some haven't and some simply can't. What we're saying is, ANY amount you give for our students is certainly better than a poke in the eye with that proverbial big stick! ( ...take a minute.... donate today!)

 • 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.

 

FOR/HA TEXAS HOLD 'EM TOURNAMENT 

(aka Poker Night) 

Plans are underway for this fun and profitable night out! 

1. Save the date - Dec. 2 from 4-9:00 pm
