Second Semester Updates

Hey everyone! Just a little update on things going on this semester

  1. ShelterBox: We ended up raising around $500 for ShelterBox, and our goal was only $100! Thanks to everyone who helped out with sales and contributed.
  2. We have 2 new representatives on the officer team this year. Congrats to Logan Barth, our freshman rep and Harleen Bal, our sophomore rep.
  3. We noticed that a lot of you are short on recycling hours. Make sure to stop by at H-5 on Tuesdays to help out. Also, if you bring a paper bag of sorted, recycled stuff on Tuesdays, then you can get one recycling hour.
  4. Valentine's Day cards: We made over 150 cards to donate to children's hospitals in the Sacramento area. The info can be found here: http://www.endonline.com/wake-calls-cards-kids 
  5. CLUB PICTURES: Interact club pictures are tomorrow 2/13 by the reader room! Make sure to bring your shirt (or money to buy one).

- Samara Saquib, VP

Welcome to Interact 2017-2018!

Hi everyone! Welcome back if you're a returning member, and welcome to the club if this is your first year! We have some new plans and exciting changes this year that we're looking forward to.

  1. Hours refresher: You need 25 volunteer hours total to get your certificate at the end of the year, and 5 of those hours must be Green Hours
  2. Meetings: We meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month in B-3
  3. FOOD: We're actually bringing food this year since y'all won't show up unless we have cookies or something
  4. Event idea form: We are creating a new form if you have an event or fundraiser idea that you think we should try out! Make sure to include details about event location, date, time, etc. The link can be found here: https://goo.gl/forms/9xo7E7JwEbXOGjMx1
  5. Volunteer request form: If you know about an event that is looking for some volunteers, fill out this form. Link: https://goo.gl/forms/1UI9ykLllBhk9hpn1

Thanks, and we're looking forward to a great year!

-Samara Saquib, Vice President 2017-2018

News and Stuff

  • Mr. Seely's petition to rid the CCNR's of the "whites only" covenant has been added to the events calendar. Seems like it should be a good time. We especially need 18 year olds, as they're the only once who can legally collect signatures. SIGNUP  TO FIGHT RACISM. 
  • It's My Park day going on at the same time. They've got an appreciation barbecue for you afterwords, too. So that's nice. 
  • We have scheduled what might be the last recycling sorting for next Monday, immediately after 7th period. This will be your last chance to earn enough green hours to receive your certificate.
  • Our end-of-year party is next Thursday in B-3. Be there or be square (and hungry). 
  • Rotary President's dinner is the 20th's and signups are lookin' pretty dang good. There's still a few spots left if you're interested. 

Best of luck with finals and AP tests everyone. Keep interacting and whatever. 

End of Year Party

Our end of year party will be held on May 18th during lunch in B3 (as though it were a normal meeting.) There will be pizza, cookies or brownies or something, we'll pass out certificates, talk a little about the year, and maybe some other lit stuff. If your hours aren't complete by the 14th, then you won't get a certificate. If your hours aren't complete by the 26th, you won't get the recognition of being a true Interactor who interacted all the way.

Rummage Sale

Interact will be having a Rummage Sale at the CSD Community Garage Sale. We're asking for donations - anything that you'd usually sell at a garage sale. This could be clothing, books, toys, small furniture, etc. In return, you can get hours to help complete the requirement (Which is going to be due pretty soon.)

  • Each "bag" of items you bring in (or an amount of items roughly equivalent to the volume of one bag) will earn you one hour
  • I'm referring to the brown paper bags we used to be able to shop with before Jerry Brown passed the great Bag Exile of 2016
  • Larger furniture or otherwise unique items could also earn you an hour. We'll have a bit of discretion with this but don't worry, we'll be generous. 

Thanks, everyone! Keep up the good work!
