PRO LIFE T-SHIRT ORDER - 2024 Catholic Central Pro-Life T-Shirts! We need to know how many of each size to order, so please take the time to fill out THIS FORM! Each shirt is $15, with the money due to Mrs. Lambert in room 510 as soon as possible. You can still buy shirts if you didn’t fill this out in time, but there will likely only be a limited number for all those who did not fill out this form. The shirts should arrive in a few weeks!

TECHNOLOGY DRIVE - The Esports team will be beginning their old technology drive. They will be collecting old phones, laptops, tablets, wires, and other electronics with metal in them. They can't take screens, batteries, and certain other hazardous materials. Items can be dropped off in room 405. The drive will end at the end of the week of spring break(4/5). If you have any questions email carsonbanfield@grcatholiccentral.or

VOLUNTEER NEEDED - Enjoy running? And would you also enjoy a volunteer activity that involves running? San Juan Diego Academy is looking for a volunteer for the Total Trek Quest program this Spring at the school. TTQ is a program for 3rd to 5th grade boys that teaches them to make positive life choices through running, culminating in a competitive 5K at the end of the practices. A volunteer is sought for the Tuesday afternoon practices, which run from 3:40 to 5:10 p.m., beginning March 12 and ending on May 14. (There are no practices during Spring break.) All you would need to do is run with the boys and encourage them to keep moving toward their goal. Running times range from 20 minutes to 40 minutes. There will be two trained coaches present who will be responsible for actually running practices. If you are interested, or might have questions, please contact Tom Sarb at Thank you.
