From Ms. Pascoe 

This week is Tobacco free teens week.  Did you know… Smoking is the single largest cause of preventable disease and death in the United States. There is no safe level of exposure to environmental tobacco smoke. If you have parents, relatives or friends who smoke, ask them not to smoke indoors or in the car, even if the windows are open, smoke can still get trapped inside. Join us in the Cafeteria during your lunch to sign a smoking stinks pledge, and learn more about the harmful effects of tobacco.

From the Cafeteria: 

Café news:  Line 5 will be open for snacks, a la carte sandwiches, salads, parfaits and grab and go lunches.  No need to stand in long lines for snacks anymore.
