The Bloodmobile is coming on Tuesday, October 28.
At Truman, we’re proud of the fact that our blood drive participation rate is among the highest in the District. And next week, Bulldogs will have the chance to give again.
Students age 16 and over can sign up to donate on Friday at lunch. Parent permission is required for 16 and 17 year olds. Those students should pick up a permission form on Friday and bring it with them on donation day.
In addition to the satisfaction of doing a good deed and saving lives, student donors will receive a fabulous thank you t-shirt from Cascade Regional Blood Services.
Come visit representatives from colleges, trade schools, specialty schools, trades offering apprenticeships, and most branches of the military to answer any questions you have about what’s next for the student in your family.

The event takes place from 6 – 8 p.m. at Thomas Jefferson High School. Life After High School is sponsored by Federal Way Public Schools High School Career and College Specialists.

Washington State 2014 Healthy Youth Survey

The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, and access to school-based services. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.
The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.
Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.
