New Zoom practice going into play – in order to keep better control of those who want to give Happy Dollars, and keep us from talking over each other, “Raise Hand” will be put into use. Click on “participants” at bottom middle of your screen, click on “more” and your will see “Raise hand”. Click on this when you want to be recognized. Then click on “Lower hand” when done. The host will call on you to speak. Otherwise, please mute yourself while others speak.
Happy/Crappy Dollars? We are still accepting them weekly, but you need to keep track of them and pay up when we meet again in person. Remember the Four Way Test???

Salvation Army Kettle Drive
It’s a go – or rather a ring-a-ding. Thank you to the members who volunteered to brave the rain, cold, wind, and likely snow to watch over the red kettle in front of Boscovs. And thank you Marie Holliday for coordinating the work hours.
Interact Students arrange Food Drive
The students from the ninth grade class of Global Studies (our newest Interact students) are holding a virtual Food Drive where you can donate money to purchase specific food items.
Here is the link: https://fbd.fenly.org/drive/newark-charter-schools-virtual-food-drive/
Or you can drop off non-perishable food items in the box at the end of the driveway at 23 Cornwall Drive, Newark DE 19711. Items will be collected through Dec. 22 and then taken to the Food Bank of Delaware..
Let’s show the ninth graders we can step up and help! I will let Lisa Westerfield know.

Thought for the Week
For all you Scrooges:
The Devil whispered to me, “I’m coming for you!”
I whispered back, “Bring pizza.”
