HELP RESTOCK THE GRATITUDE BOX
When a student or teacher would like to brighten someone’s day with “Thank you,” or a kind, encouraging, celebratory, or empathetic note, they can grab a card from the library’s Gratitude Box.
This has led to a happy problem: the MLWGS Library’s Gratitude Box is running low.
If you’d like to help restock the box, Ms. DeGroat will gladly accept the following:
· Thank You, Congratulations, Thinking of You, Happy Birthday, Get Well, & Sympathy cards
· Blank note cards
· Colorful card stock
· Decorative writing paper
· Decorative cut scissors
· Handmade paper
· Fun stickers
“Restock the Box” contributions are encouraged November 9 through December 9. Donated supplies help support a culture of caring at MLWGS and can either be left with Ms. Williams, or brought directly to Ms. DeGroat. Thank you!
THE NIGHT OF THE DRAGON IS NOT ONLY A PARTY,
BUT A HUGE FUNDRAISER FOR MAGGIE WALKER!
The Fifteenth Annual Night of the Dragon Auction is Saturday evening, February 25, 2017 at the Short Pump Hilton Hotel and Spa. It promises to be an exciting evening of live and silent auctions, delicious food and spirits, beautiful music, and enjoyable conversation! This event directly benefits the students of the Maggie L. Walker Governor's School by providing major funding for the PTSA, Academic Boosters, Athletic Boosters, Drama Boosters, Music Boosters, Visual Arts Boosters and the Governor’s School Foundation.
Although students help out with the event, providing entertainment and support, the event is meant to be a fun night out for Maggie Walker parents, friends, alumni and staff! Tickets are sold in advance to attend, and wonderful items are donated by individuals and local businesses for auction. The Night of the Dragon Auction Committee is already hard at work planning for this year’s festivities. However, they cannot succeed without a lot of volunteers - and donations! Learn how you can help support this important event by coming to the next auction committee meeting, Wednesday November 9, at 5:30 p.m. in room 153.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Peggy Feldmann at 804-517-8957.
MAGGIE WALKER DRAMA CLUB PRESENTS
THE TRAGEDY OF JULIUS CAESAR
by William Shakespeare and directed by Foster Solomon
November 17, 18 & 19 at 7:00 p.m.
Julius Caesar is one of the several plays written by Shakespeare based on true events from Roman history. Although the title is Julius Caesar, Caesar is not the most visible character in its action, appearing alive in only three scenes. Marcus Brutus speaks more than four times as many lines, and the central psychological drama of the play focuses on Brutus’ struggle between the conflicting demands of honor, patriotism, and friendship.
This cast of 29 students is one of MLWGS’s largest casts ever, but there are even more students involved in the tech and stage crew. Together, all have worked hard to bring this production to the Maggie Walker stage. We hope to see you at the show!
Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults. Purchase tickets online here (http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2709002) or at the door.
Questions? Please contact email@example.com.
Herff Jones will be collecting orders for graduation announcements on Wednesday, November 9 and Thursday, November 10 in the first floor commons during lunch. This will be the only time Herff Jones collects these orders in the building. You may contact the vendor directly, but all orders need to be placed before January 1 in order to ensure delivery in April. There is no guarantee that there will be extra announcements available to order/purchase second semester. Please contact Ms. Sheppard if you have questions - firstname.lastname@example.org or 804-354-6800 ext. 3304.
