Class of 2024 Parent Raffle

The Class of 2024 is holding its annual January Raffle in 2022. Here's how it works -

We have exactly 1,000 tickets to sell, numbered between 000 and 999, at $10 each. Winners are chosen nightly, for the 31 days of January, by the MD Lottery Evening Pick 3. There is a winner every day and because the winners are chosen randomly by the lottery, theoretically, someone could win more than once. If we do not sell every ticket and one of those unsold numbers is chosen on any given night, we use a random number generator app to choose the winner. If you would like to buy a ticket please contact Scott Phillips at 410-310-6264 or any Sophomore Class parent.

A Message from the Wellness Center

The months of December, January, and February are known for being the coldest months of the year, but many people don’t realize that they are also the driest. Making sure your skin is properly moisturized is very important to prevent rashes and redness from forming. Apply lotion or moisturizing cream to your entire body and Vaseline to lips every day. Also, as a reminder, wear sunscreen year-round. It is strongly recommended, as the sun’s rays can be just as harmful to the skin when bouncing off the snow as they are in the summertime.

Skin isn’t the only body part to be affected by the dryness of winter. Your eyes need extra moisture in the form of eye drops due to crisp, outdoor air and indoor heating units. You also need to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays with sunglasses. Snow has been proven to reflect nearly 80 percent of the sun’s rays, and these rays can cause many forms of eye damage.
