There is an old Chinese saying: “If we don’t change our direction, we are likely to wind up where we are headed.” How simple and honest is that? Well, it’s already a new year! A good time to make a change.
Here’s an easy change that can make an impact in four areas of our own lives. When we go out to eat, let’s take our own containers to use as doggie bags. There is no legitimate reason not to. Here’s how it will help:
- We split our huge plate of food in half decreasing calorie, fat, and sugar intake.
- Supplies us with another meal to have at home, saving money and time.
- Decreases trash in the environment by using our own reusable container.
- Multiplies the benefits when the people at nearby tables and your server see what you did and do it themselves the next time they go out.
Have a very Happy New Year!!

Plainfield High School vs Avon High School
Reading Challenge 2016
It is time to announce the tenth annual Plainfield/Avon Reading Challenge. This is a contest between Plainfield High School and Avon High School. The Reading Challenge is sponsored by both Media Centers. This is a contest to see which school can read the most pages in a three to four week time frame. Students may read books, magazines, or newspapers – as long as it is not for a class assignment. Students will then need to show a staff member what they have read and answer a few questions. More information will be shared with students through announcements in late January.
