Teens for Tomorrow

Teens for Tomorrow (T4T) is a youth philanthropy group for high

school students from Rock Island County, Illinois and Scott County,

Iowa. These young leaders become philanthropists by learning

about community needs, developing a grant opportunity, evaluating

applications, making site visits, and awarding grants. Each year, T4T

awards a total of $10,000 to nonprofits meeting a variety of needs in

the Quad City Area.

 

T4T Members develop leadership and communication skills, earn

service hours, and get a unique opportunity to make a difference in

their community.

Looking for Housing for NET Team Members – April 8th & 9th

ATTENTION ANYONE WILLING TO HOST TEAM MEMBERS

Our formal speaker for the freshmen and senior retreats had to cancel last minute, so we had to reschedule our Freshman and Senior retreats and find an alternative.

Luckily, NET members were able to reassemble and they will be here on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

If any one is willing to host NET members next week (Monday and Tuesday night) please let me know as soon as possible. They will get in Monday night and leave Wednesday after the second retreat.

Thank you!

Freshman and Senior Retreat Days Rescheduled

Dear 9th and 12th grade students and parents/guardians:

I so appreciate your patience as we have juggled plans for the upcoming freshmen and senior retreats.  Unfortunately, we just received word from our retreat facilitator that he is not going to be able to come for the scheduled retreats this Thursday and Friday.  (On the bright side, their soon-to-be born twin girls and momma are healthy, and things just need to get moving in terms of delivery.)

Fortunately, we were able to connect with the NET Retreat Team, and they are able to be here for both retreats with a slight adjustment in dates.  So, we feel strongly this will be the last change of plans with this, the freshmen retreat will now be next Tuesday, April 9, and the senior retreat will now be next Wednesday, April 10th.  Both retreats will still be held at Sacred Heart Cathedral as previously scheduled.  Those parents who have volunteered to provide desserts and snacks for their respective classes, please note the new dates. Freshmen will be bussed to and from AHS that day, and seniors will meet Wednesday morning at the Cathedral prior to the start of Mass at 8:30 a.m.  Being that permission slips have already been collected for the originally scheduled date, we will consider permission granted to apply to the rescheduled date unless we hear from a parent or guardian prior to the retreat that they wish to rescind their permission slip.

Again, thanks so much for your patience and flexibility with this.  We look forward to both classes having a positive and meaningful retreat experience early next week.  Have a great rest of your day.

Blessings,

Mrs. Bridget Murphy
