Announcements | November 13th





The Bellevue West Blood Drive is Nov 15. If you are 16 or older and would like to give blood please stop by the lunch table this week and sign up. If you are 16 you need a parent permission form signed before signing up. Help us reach our goal of 130 units of blood!


Did you know that it is estimated that someone who has never studied French already knows approximately 15,000 words and expressions in the language? This is because William the Conquerer, who was the Duke of Normandy France, landed in England in 1066 and became the King of England after the battle of Hastings. For several centuries, his descendant kings ruled and used French in the royal court.


Any student interested in participating in track for Bellevue West this spring, there will be a meeting on Thurs Nov 14 in Room 111 right after school. If you can’t make the meeting or have questions please see Coach Litz in Room 111.


Swimmers will have equipment checkout Wednesday Nov 13 and Thursday Nov 14 after school in the pool area.
