O’Donel High School’s students and staff have long prided themselves on a history of social awareness both in our area and in the world at large.  With that in mind, once again we, as a school of over 600 students and about 40 staff, are committed to providing as many full Christmas Hampers as we possibly can to those who are at need in our community.
Every month we are going to post a list of items needed for the food hampers and designate each level of students to bring different items each month.  Your help is greatly appreciated in this endeavor! 
Students may bring one item or many items.  Nothing will be turned down!  Donations of grocery gift cards or cash will be gratefully accepted and will be used to buy the perishable items (milk, eggs, butter, turkey, etc) just before we deliver the hampers.   Items can be dropped off at the office clearly marked FOR CHRISTMAS HAMPERS or can be given to any teacher who will bring them to room 115.
Thank you for your help in this very important initiative of the Students and Staff of O’Donel High.

Please return any textbooks you have at home.  Other students need them.  If you are not sure they belong to O'Donel- we will re-direct them to the correct school.

A 10 day EF tour of Greece is planned for Easter of 2017.  Many students have already registered, but there are still several spots left.  If you would like information about this trip, pick up information from Mrs. Rose in room 115 or email patriciarose@nlesd.ca
PROM FUNDRAISER # 2 (VEGETABLE HAMPERS FOR CHRISTMAS) IS NOW UNDER WAY.  All information is given out in the Level 3 English classes.  The cost of the vegetable hampers is $14.00 and the profit from each hamper is $5.00.   If your child did not bring home the information, please direct him/her to his/her English teacher.
