Culture Fair is April 2nd

By Christina Izquierdo and Canisha Crawford

The Culture Fair will be held at Garinger from 2:30-5 p.m. April 2.

Ms.Stanley, who is in charge of promoting the fair, is looking for people to perform such as poets, rappers and singers. She is getting help from her fellow students and trying to plan for the weather that day so events can be held outside and food and donations inside the building.

She said people should be involved in the culture fair because we are all from some where, and we have not embraced other cultures as we should. We should get to know and understand each other from different backgrounds.

Those who want to get involved should see Mr. Shelton or Ms. Stanley.

With the help of Mrs.Ogle, Mitzel Perra and dozens of students, Garinger’s 2015 Blood Drive on March 9 was a tremendous success.

Thanks to our brave and generous students and staff, 67 units of blood was collected, which will benefit more than 200 people who have suffered traumatic injuries.

Mrs.Ogle, who has been a nurse for 38 years, set a goal to collect as much blood as possible because it is such a critical need in our community.

More than 90 students donated blood. Others who volunteered to work at the event include Solomea Asfaw, Karen Escobar, Tangela Gallman, Sofia Lopez, Hinin Sin Oo, Flor Lovo, and Summer Williston.

A big “thanks” from Ms. Ogle to everyone who participated in this year’s blood drive.
