This Week 8/11/19

Welcome to the 8th edition. 

General:

4 Houses – House Perkins is still holding strong in first place after another solid turnout for the tubing event. Thanks again to all that participated. Be sure to log your community service hours on Med Hub. 

– Shirts are available now in Christie’s office. When you pick up your shirt also get your QR code. 

Master Calendar(s) – are on damonsdue.com. However, we had to embed them separately instead of having them all in 1 calendar. It’s mainly because of sharing permissions from Tangier. We are still trying to figure out a way around this.
