Meetings target communication between schools

Two meetings have been set to facilitate communication between the representative groups from each school. They are meant to help engage parents and other volunteers and to increase the likelihood of a high-quality education for all students.

The PTA/PTO/PTSA meeting is Monday in the Soldotna Elementary School staff development room from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The meeting will be for parent group presidents.

The Site-Based Council meeting is Tuesday in the Soldotna Elementary School staff development room from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Monthly care-giver meeting to be held

The Tyotkas Elder Center meeting will be held by Family Caregivers Outreach and Support Program at noon Wednesday at the Tyotkas Elder Center at Fort Kenay, 1104 Mission Ave. in Kenai.

Blood donations sought

There is a need for O negative donors to give blood. The need for type O negative blood exceeds the available supply. The Blood Bank of Alaska currently only has four pints of O negative on hand. Not only is this blood type important for type O patients, it may be given to any patient, regardless of blood type.

The Industry Appreciation Day blood drive will be held Saturday between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the Kenai Mall near Sears. Questions can be directed to Blood Bank of Alaska Kenai Peninsula Center at 260-5672. A free T-shirt is given with each donation.
