The 33rd Annual Newport Ski Swap, our biggest fundraiser of the year, is just around the corner on November 9th and 10th! One of the most important things that make this event so successful every year is the volunteers, and we need a lot of you! There are a lot of different jobs, and no experience is required. The Ski Swap is open for just two days, but there are full days of set up and tear down before and after the Swap. Please go to this link to the sign-up page and help as much as you can:

Students, with the new printer server installed by BSD you may need to reload the drivers. Best practice appears to be reinstall when printing from WORD; selecting add printer from the printer properties drop down menu; and typing in the printer ID.
Please note the following printer use considerations in classes and the KASC/library as follows:
Limit 5 pages
Click Print only once
Use printer while in the room/library
Double check which printer you have selected
Get tech assistance if there is a problem.
Thank you all for taking care as a community to be efficient in the use of our resources.
Peer Tutors Wanted: We are now recruiting Peer Tutors for all subjects. Peer tutors receive community service hours for their assistance. Students who want to be a Peer Tutor can sign up in the Counseling Office. Do you need a Peer Tutor? Are you needing extra help in one of your classes? A peer tutor may be able to help. Request a peer tutor in the Counseling Office. Peer Tutors can provide one on one help or work in small groups.
