Meetings every Wednesday in Mr. Heye’s, room 309

Kiss a Senior Good-bye It’s that bittersweet time of the year—the graduating seniors will be leaving for their next great adventure, and the end of the school year is only a few weeks away. Along with the yearly traditions of the graffiti wall, senior wills, and senior destinations, Key Club holds its annual Kiss a Senior Goodbye fundraiser, which raises money towards Key Club’s operating costs and DCON fees.

Orders can be placed in the Commons during lunch from May 22nd- June 4th, or you can find one of the officers during the day, as they will be carrying around order forms and example roses. You can write a note to your seniors, and the roses will be delivered by the end of the day on Purple & White.

Of course, there’s no actual kissing involved; but you can buy some sweet chocolate kiss roses for your departing senior friends. It’s a kind gesture that they’ll definitely appreciate.

Prices: 1 rose for $1 3 roses for $2 12 roses for $7

MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR Dear Key Clubbers, I know it’s nearing the end of the school year, but Key Club still has tons of events and fun activities planned—service never sleeps, you guys! Today is our awesome ice cream party, all thanks to YOUR hard work. We will also be selling roses for our annual Kiss a Senior Goodbye fundraiser, engaging in fun volunteer events, and conducting weekly meetings as always. Shout-out to Arlen for bringing in his cool Key Club-themed mug to the meeting last week, and thank you so much for those who helped make roses for the Kiss a Senior Goodbye fundraiser. Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend, and be sure to come to the May DCM if you can. I hope to see you there or at Folklife!

There will be competitions, a scavenger hunt, beach time, and tons of food and friends. We will also be saying goodbye to our wonderful seniors! Rainbow Board points will be awarded to our Key Club if you attend, so come out and represent Garfield! If you want to see the LTGs from each of the different divisions pied or dunked in the lake, May 25th will be your lucky day. Miracle Minute is happening! If $200 is raised, you can have a chance to pie them in the face. If $300 is raised, they’ll jump in the lake!
