The nutrition department has conducted a survey with the help of our Lisbon INC crew asking student what they would like to eat for breakfast at school. The results have shown that our students would like to have more of their favorite breakfast items offered daily. Some of the options can include more biscuits and gravy, more muffins, more yogurt parfaits, more breakfast sandwiches, and more healthy donuts.
The School will be hosting a blood drive next Thursday April 27 from 2:45-6:00 p.m. in the High School cafeteria. If the school meets its goal for amount of blood donated, the school will receive $250 that will help fund training for the AED trainers. To sign up please call or email Julie Light, RN at 455-2659, ext. 236 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also sign up at bloodcenterimpact.org and look for the Lisbon Blood Drive. By donating you can help save 3-4 lives, you get to relax for a little while, and get a snack when you are done.

On Friday April 21 Sydney Bedell, Silas Young, Tanya Mallie, Kaitlyn Kerslake, Ryann Fall, and Austin Soukup traveled to the Tri-Rivers Art Festival and competition at Springville High School. All of the students did very well.
Some advice for students taking the ACT would be to bring proper writing utensils, snacks, water, and a calculator for the math portion. Get plenty of rest and make sure to eat a good breakfast to help wake your mind up for the big test. Also make sure to study before you go and take the test!
