FBLA and Shepeard Blood Center will be hosting a blood drive on Friday, February 23rd on the Bloodmobile buses from 8:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. in front of Metter High School. Donors should be sure to eat a nutritious breakfast and drink lots of water on the day of the blood drive. Additionally, donors should begin now eating iron rich foods in their meals to help avoid low iron which eliminates a person from donating. Students must be at least 16 years of age, meet height and weight requirements, AND have parent permission to donate blood. Morning donors will receive a free breakfast item. And all blood donors will receive snacks and a free t-shirt while supplies last. All students who donate blood will also receive a free 100 ticket to be used in a high school classroom at the teacher's discretion. Students under the age of 16 are encouraged to recruit a donor on their behalf to also earn the free 100 ticket. Additionally, students who donate OR recruit donors on their behalf three times during one school year will earn a Red Cord to wear at graduation. This is our THIRD blood drive of the year, so this is your THIRD chance to work toward earning that Red Cord for this school year!!! Our goal is to have 75 people present to be blood donors on Friday, February 23rd! Remember each blood donation saves up to three lives!

We are excited to announce that we will begin construction on the new Metter College & Career Academy very soon! As with any construction project, there are challenges. For at least the remainder of this school year and more than likely, into next year, students will continue to park in the grass area in front of the school. However, beginning MONDAY, FEBRUARY 19 the former student parking area will be blocked off to ALL traffic and there will be no through-traffic to the back of the High School. NO students will be able to park directly behind the High School. If faculty/staff wish to park near the tennis courts or the weight room during the school day, they will have to enter through the Oak Tree Entrance. Please note there is plenty of parking at the K8 complex. After 3:30 pm weekdays and on the weekends, traffic is permitted through the Bus Entrance to the athletic complexes. We understand this will be an inconvenience for some, but please understand that we are growing and the final product will be well worth it!
