Good morning Springfield High! Today is November 22, 2019

Opening night of the SHS fall play “The Outsiders” is tonight at 7pm! Other performances are tomorrow at 7pm and Sunday at 2:00pm. All performances are in the SHS auditorium. Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for adults and can be purchased at the door before each performance. Make sure to come and support the hard work of your SHS actors and crew.

If you’d like to participate in the 2019 Women’s Leadership Essay Contest, any student can write a 500 word essay about who inspires you and turn it in before December 1st. See Leardi for details!

The next blood drive is November 26th. See Mr. Covey in room 510 to signup to donate.  You must be at least 16 and weigh at least 110 pounds to donate.  9.5 million Americans donate blood each year.  An adult has approximately 10-12 pints of blood.  About 1 in 7 people entering the hospital need blood.  The blood center can produce up to 4 lifesaving products from 1 pint of whole blood.  More than 40,000 pints of donated blood are used each day in the US and Canada.  Cancer is the number one use of blood and blood products at 19%.  38% of the population is eligible to give blood, but less than 10% actually donate.  The US Food and Drug Administration regulates the blood supply and mandates that blood donors not be paid or receive any item “readily convertible to cash” in return for their donations. Only voluntary donations can be used for transfusion.

Attention Juniors - reminder to turn in apparel order forms to Mrs. Devlin today. Extra order forms are outside Mrs. Devlins office.
