CONGRATULATIONS: To everyone who participated in this year’s RELAY FOR LIFE on Friday afternoon. Despite a formidable forecast, and some last minute changes, the event was an enormous success. The goal was to raise $100K for the American Cancer Society and that’s exactly what was done. Both Mr. Anthony Petraglia and Mrs. Dina Marron want to extend their thanks to seniors Hannah Mitchell, Ashleann Berry, Robert Sierp and Alyssa Kaytan for being student leaders on this event, not to mention everyone who sponsored a team, participated in the relay itself or just plain showed their support by either wearing the true colors or sharing words of encouragement, we are all grateful to you.
We’re into WEEK TWO of AP TESTING here at North, so remember, children, please – mind your manners in the halls, keep it down to a dull roar, especially near the Media Center and Main Gym.
ANOTHER reminder: If you’re goin’ to GUIDANCE, don’t forget to bring your IDs. The keypad is GOING AWAY, kids. This is how it is in the real world, so learn to be prepared. SWIPE, DON’T TYPE.

SOME INTERESTING FACTS FOR YOU HISTORY BUFFS: On this day –
- In 1940, Winston Churchill gave his first public speech as the new Prime Minister of Great Britain, at which time he famously told the British House of Commons: “I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.” And,
- In 1981, Pope John Paul II was shot in front of 20,000 worshippers in St. Peter’s Square by a mentally disturbed young man from Turkey. After recovering from his injury, the pope met with the young man and forgave him for what he did. 24 years later, on this same day in 2005, the Vatican announced it would begin the process of making John Paul II a saint.
