Hope For Haiti.  This is a program started by one of our seniors-Hadley Hindeman-and she would like our help for the victims of the hurricane that recently hit Haiti.  The Red Cross is asking mainly for personal items for the victims including: shampoo, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste etc... So, Student Council joined in and thought to ask each class to donate an item:  Freshmen-soap, Sophomores-shampoo, Juniors-Toothbrush or toothpaste, and Seniors-deodorant. There are bins in the lobby and Ms. Prestel's room.
