************SENIOR ADVICE TO YOUNGER STUDENTS!******************
Today's advice comes from Natasha Kusi ('16): Use your 9th grade year wisely and take advantage of all the opportunities, including internships, because by the time you get to senior year you're going to feel overwhelmed with too much going on. 
SHOUT OUT to the student volunteers of SGA who helped with the Blood Drive. Does your class read the announcements? Shout your teacher out! See Ms. Davis or email

CORRECT ANSWER to Medical Question:  a) Irregular heartbeat.Reason: Irregular heartbeats should be reported promptly to the care provider. Metaproterenol (Alupent) may cause irregular heartbeat, tachycardia, or anginal pain because of its adrenergic effect on beta-adrenergic receptors in the heart. It is not recommended for use in clients with known cardiac disorders. Metaproterenol does not cause constipation, pedal edema, or bradycardia.
