Thursday High School Announcement

Reflection
April is National Poetry Month. Please fill out this survey to suggest short poems that could be shared here.

The following haiku is credited to twentieth-century English-language poet Richard Wright:

From across the lake,
Past the black winter trees,
Faint sounds of a flute.

Service
--
Our SIA Team continues to meet weekly via Zoom. We have created a resource document with ways to invite students to serve while sheltering-in-place. We hope you find this helpful! This document will be updated as needed.

-- Due to the cautions being taken in light of COVID-19, all service activities that take place through the school's service program are suspended. This includes all tutoring programs, all elementary school-related programs, and services at elder facilities. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. O'Connor

MobileServe Tips

  • When recording your service to your MobileServe account, remember to include a supervisor name and email for verification. If you have some evidence of service like a certificate, email, or document that states the agency, dates, and hours of service, you can always take a picture of it and upload it with your MobileServe entry. Then you can make your advisor the supervisor as he or she will have all the necessary information for verification. Remember, all unverified service DOES NOT count towards your total service. 
  • When a supervisor approves your service through the email that MobileServe sends, your entry will NOT automatically receive a green check indicating approval. Your entry receives an envelope icon that your advisor or an administrator may see next to your entry in your record. Only an advisor/administrator may give final approval for the green check.
    • All students should regularly check in with their advisors to review your service record.

Clubs
Although we have switched to distance learning, book club is still in session! We have just started reading Richard Powers' The Overstory. If you are interested in joining, we will have weekly meetings on Thursdays at 8:30 a.m. Our next meeting is April 2. You can access the Zoom room here. If you decide to join us, please try and read up to page 64, the section entitled "Ray Brinkman and Dorthy Cazaly." An online version of the novel can be found here: https://whatnovels.com/the-overstory-read-online/. We hope you decide to join book club! It is always nice to have new faces! In the meantime, please stay healthy and safe, and contact Grace O'Reilly or Gabby Vulakh with questions.
