The calls, will be a reminder to the parents and students to report Saturday morning, and should take no more than 1/1/2 hours. Interested persons should contact Mr. Foreman at 404-853-4000 ext 224.

*** BOOK DONATIONS NEEDED - The Interact Club will be holding a book sale to raise money for the African Library Project, which is helping to build a library in Rwanda. So that we can raise as much money as possible for the project, the Interact Club is asking for book donations. Although all donations will be greatly appreciated, classic, children, mystery, health-related, reference, and how-to books are ideal. Donations can be sent to Ms. Whitten's room, room #302 through March.

***If there are any nurses that are interested in teaching, Atlanta Technical College is looking for a part-time teacher to teach patient assisting classes in the dual enrollment program with the High Schools.  Grady High School is one of those schools, through the Healthscience Career Academy. If anyone is interested contact Sandra UKah @ 404-249-7401.
