The newly elected 2013-2014 School-wide Student Council is sponsoring “Boston Strong Day,” at Austin on Friday, May 24th. All Austin students will be able to wear blue and yellow or any official Boston Strong attire. The suggested minimum contribution, which will be donated to the Boston One Fund, will be $5, but students, faculty, and staff will be encouraged to donate more if their means allow. Collections will take place on Thursday, May 23 during all lunches and during homeroom on Friday, May 24.
An Austin family has donated two excellent tickets to the July 26, 6:30PM Taylor Swift show at Gillette Stadium. The seats are near the stage. We are raffling off the tickets and we will sell only 100 tickets at $10 each, and the proceeds will be put toward the Inner City Scholarship Fund. The first phase of the sales will be for seniors only. Seniors will be able to buy tickets during lunch today and all next week and on Tuesday, May 28 during Field Day from Ms. Chamberland. Beginning Wednesday, May 29 tickets will go on sale for students in Grades 6-11 on a first come, first serve basis. Please support the Inner City Scholarship Fund and buy a raffle ticket for a chance to see Taylor Swift!
Stratton Stilianos and Nick DeVivo -- please see Mr. Ayers by the end of the day today.
Today, several of our athletic teams will honor their seniors. The teams are boys lacrosse, boys baseball and girls tennis. Come to the fields to celebrate with them.
Do you have any gently used clothing or items for men, women, children and infants that you no longer need? If so, bring them in bags to Ms. Vacanti’s office by Tuesday, June 4. These items will be brought to the Dominican Republic this summer by sophomores Darina DeBenedictis and Giulia Ensing. Be creative. An entire family in the Dominican Republic can appreciate the smallest items that no longer serve a purpose to you. So please help bring smiles to those who are less fortunate and donate to this cause.
National Honor Society members are reminded that today's meeting is in Room 400 due to AP
