Thank you to Mrs. Allen for keeping us on track and getting on to us so we can get it all done. Thank you to all the teachers who help us sell ads. We appreciate you.

Blood Drive
By Harley Hernandez

The blood drive was January 30, 2020. We have a big student council so they wend out and signed up a lot of people. Each student council member had to get three people to sign up. There were 23 people who showed up to donate blood.
We had some of our students actually signed up and gave a few pints of blood. Some students and teachers just couldn’t because they were either in class, didn’t weigh enough or didn’t have enough iron.
I hope that Mrs. Freeman and the students got the amount of people that they needed.
Thank you to everyone, who came to support and gave blood and the ones who tried but couldn’t there is always next time. Also thank you to the people from the Oklahoma Blood Institute that came to Olustee-Eldorado. Please con-tinue to save lives and do what you do best.
