Summary of the trip plus the importance of the supplies, by senior Aaryn Ijames:
While in the Dominican Republic, our group will be helping support the Haitian communities that are experiencing extremely low living conditions. We will be building aqueducts to provide more than 1,400 people in these communities with running water as well as laying cement floors in homes to improve the community's quality of life. The kits are essential to provide the children with school supplies that are otherwise unavailable to them as well as providing hygiene products that they are unable to attain in the Dominican Republic.
The middle school basketball games that are scheduled for today are still on, but the location has been changed from Darlington School to Coosa Middle School. Same time just different location. The players will be transported to the game.
The bookstore is selling Holiday t-shirts and you will not want to miss this awesome design! The order form is attached. Turn forms into Wendy Payne at Thatcher Hall, or Lindsay Woods at the Upper School by Friday, November 16 at noon. Shirts will be delivered after Thanksgiving.

Remember we are collecting gently used stuffed animals from November 7th - November 15th to pass out to needy children at the Love Feast Thanksgiving Day. There are many children in Rome who need a new friend to love on. Your gently used stuffed animal could bring them a lot of joy and let them know that we care about them. Our goal is to collect 500 stuffed animals. If we make our goal, we will have a dress down day on Friday, November 16.
