Give Blood

If you qualify to give blood you should seriously consider joining your fellow classmates and teachers on Thursday May 20th and give the Red Cross some of your blood. It doesn't take long and it could help save a life.

Thinking About Being More "Green"?

Did you know...

For every ton of paper that is recycled, the following is saved: 7,000 gallons of water; 380 gallons of oil; and enough electricity to power an average house for six months.
You can run a TV for six hours on the amount of electricity that is saved by recycling one aluminum can.
By recycling just one glass bottle, you save enough electricity to power a 100-watt bulb for four hours.
In the United States, 426,000 cell phones are retired every day. Bring your old cell phone in to be recycled.

Paper or Plastic?

Neither! Paper bags can hold more stuff per bag and are easily recycled, but even at 100% recycling rates, plastic bags still require less energy and create fewer airborne emissions during the life cycle of both types of bags. Ultimately, neither paper nor plastic bags are the best choice; choosing reusable canvas bags instead is the way to go.

Updated Speedball Tournament

The DECA sponsored Speedball fundraiser tournament has been re-scheduled, due to conferences, to Thursday November 20th. Again, contact DECA reps to sign your team up. Yours truly (Coach Vitelli) will be refereeing the games...that means lots of whistles to keep the game clean! If you don't like it, don't sign up.

Late Night Snacking

Many people think eating late at night causes weight gain. Actually, it’s not when you eat that matters, it’s what and how much you eat.
Fueling the body is a matter of timing. The longer you wait between meals, the more you tend to eat at the next meal. Three to four hours between meals is about the right amount of time to keep blood sugar levels in control.
Plan snacks with small portions in mind. Crackers and low fat cheese, yogurt and fruit, cereal and milk or peanut butter and apple slices are good options. Eating snacks with both carbohydrate and protein helps the body stay fueled.
If weight loss is your goal, space meals and snacks three to four hours apart, no matter what time of day, and watch portion sizes.
