Ms. Griffin coordinated a "virtual choir" for one of the songs her students had been working on in chorus. The students each recorded their part on their own, and then it was edited it all together!!

COMMUNITY SERVICE opportunities

Late-breaking opportunity: THIS SAT-Cranberry Village

Sophomores & Juniors:

The residents of Cranberry Village have invited us to help with an outdoor cleanup of their Clubhouse (75 Cranberry Rd.) this Sat (5/30) @ 10am.

Participants would help rake, pick up sticks, and possibly help with weeding.

Great chance to get out in the fresh air, help with a community project, and interact (at a safe distance!) with classmates & residents. I hope to participate.

Should last from 10:00-1:00 (could end earlier) and you'll earn 4 HOURS.

Participants should wear gloves and bring their own water and snacks. If you have a rake and a mask, bring those too while extras will be available.

Please let me know if interested so I can ensure numbers are manageable, and so I can let you know if postponed.

Hope to see some of you Saturday!

Mr. Lamoureux

Current sophomores are now being eligible to start accruing community service hours!
