Blood Drive – Friday, Feb. 17th

I am still trying to recruit donors for the blood drive.  I am hoping you will read this over the weekend and make arrangements to come to Steller during lunch or on the way home from work Friday, February 17th. This is a staff development day, so no students will be here except those who have generously agreed to donate blood. If one of those students is your adolescent, then please make certain they have provided me with a consent signed by you.  We need 18 donors to make the drive worth the Blood Bank’s time.
I am really proud of the students who have come forth and volunteered. Some have told me, “I have really looked forward to this.” That’s the Steller spirit!  It is heartening to see what a positive influence other students have been on those who were underage and could not donate in the past.  Again, the attached guideline says that a student must be at least 16 years old, have a signed parental consent on file with the nurse (if they are not 18 or older) and weight 113 pounds minimum.
Let’s give the Blood Bank at least the minimum number of donations so that they will know they can depend on Steller each and  every year.


Thanks for your help.
