  • The SAT word of the day is endearing. Endearing is an adjective meaning eliciting warm, affectionate feelings. Although the professor tended to digress and often mumbled, his many endearing qualities made him a favorite among students.

We are in need of small, fun items for girls and boys. Please bring donations to the Media Center by Wednesday, December 9th. Thank you for helping make the holiday jolly!
