GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS
Library on Wednesday afternoons: The Library will close at 2:45 on Wednesday afternoons for inventory taking until further notice. Please plan accordingly.

GIN is planning a Blood Drive
·         What: Blood donation event here @ Graded, a day during the week, after school
·         Who: You! (Students over 16 years old, parents & faculty) Everyone who’s eligible to donate is extremely welcome and encouraged to come!
·         How: A team from Hospital Albert Einstein & from Hospital Sirio Libanês to come here with everything we need. The actual donation only takes around 10-15 minutes
·         Why: (1) Every 2 seconds someone needs a blood transfusion (2) Blood stocks in hospitals unfortunately are very low   (3)  up to 3 lives  can be saved  with  every pint of blood that is donated
·         We’ll give out free food, legit cool t-shirts and probably bracelets
·         We will keep a record of the awesome Graded Donors for online public access
If you are interested in getting involved, be on the lookout for an 18-second-long survey in your inbox soon!
