To bring attention to this epidemic, the Fall Break Seat Belt Challenge is underway among the high schools here in Greene County. So, let’s all work together to lower teen drivers’ fatal crash risk by buckling up when you leave today…both drivers and passengers.

The time of giving has begun – and CIA’s annual Christmas in a Shoebox project, in cooperation with Operation Christmas Child, has also started. Collection boxes are located around the building where donations can be placed. Check with your teachers to see if they are “housing” a box – and look for the signs posted in classrooms and around the building to see the type of items which can be sent. Remember that items must be able to fit in a shoebox! Help put a smile on the face of a child somewhere in the world that may not have much…in fact, they may be placed in the hands of a child who has never received a gift. CIA and those children thank you.
JUNIORS & SENIORS interested in joining Project Charlie please see Mrs. Sumner in the library for application.
