GOOD MORNING MARINERS!

PROM 2022 FASHION SHOW - VENDORS INVITED
The Prom 2022 Fashion Show hosted by Fashion Club and the LGBTQ club is looking for local vendors to buy table space in the lobby for the evening of the show. The show is Thursday March 10th at 6pm. We are looking for prom related businesses such as limo, floral, nails, salons, tanning, etc. The cost per table is $25. Vendors must supply their own tables. In return not only will they get advertising, we will give them a free ad in the program and be listed as a co- sponsor. They can give out business cards, book appointments, hold raffles, etc.
We are very excited to support local businesses! Please email email@example.com for more information.

Click HERE for a show synopsis. In typical Roald Dahl fashion, the musical can be very dark at times. We would rate it PG as they discuss suicide and death.

MEDIA CENTER NEWS
We've seen and fixed a wide variety of Chromebook issues, but our most recent spate of problems could have been easily avoided by students following basic privacy protocols. Please talk to your children about the importance of not sharing any passwords with their friends. More guidelines on Internet safety can be found in this short article in Fatherly magazine: https://www.fatherly.com/parenting/how-to-talk-about-internet-safety-with-kids/.
Our student assistants and volunteers have been doing a great job in the Mariner Media Center. Read all about it in our 2nd Marking Period Report: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1gbmQAwWE389WgVKnxHWyw-Te6LVT_tKb/view?usp=sharing
