    Here are the Eagle News Network's school news announcements in text version for: 

    MONDAY, OCTOBER 21:

    • NEW Slippers, NEW Socks, and NEW Shoes Collection is starting! October 21st thru November 21st help numerous children, ages 2-18 in Collier County Foster Care system, make the step towards their future easier this holiday and donate new socks, shoes, and warm/fuzzy slippers! Collected through your English/Language Arts teacher. The Teacher’s class period with the most collected wins their choice of a donut/breakfast or pizza/lunch party (depending on which period wins). ELA teachers will receive a collection bag, but may use their own if more space is needed. Final collection is Thursday, November 21, 2019.  Questions, see Mrs. Stewart in room 11-105. Brought to you by the KINDest club on campus, your TOM's Campus Club!
    • Attention all Juniors and Seniors! You get to pick this year's PROM 2020 theme. Prom will be held on Saturday, May 2 at the Beach Club, and we just can't decide which theme to go with, so we need your help! On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week, look for the special QR code on ENN and in select classrooms, to scan and select your favorite. You may only vote once, so make your selection carefully. Sorry Freshman and Sophomores, this is closed only to the upperclassmen. The winning theme will be announced next Wednesday on ENN, so don't miss it! 
    • Did you attend Prom last year?  Did you really, really, really, really, enjoy the bountiful foods on the buffet? Help make it a reality again for this year's Prom, and come out to CHIPOTLE tonight between 4 and 8 PM and order something to eat and drink. MENTION Naples High School Fundraiser, and we'll get a portion of the sale to go towards making sure a buffet of yummy foods is available again this year.  Ticket prices are coming down, but the food prices don't. Stop by CHIPOTLE tonight between 4 and 8PM, mention NHS fundraiser, or show them this flyer on your phone, and YOU could be the difference between sweet, delicious, buffet foods, or drab, flavorless plated meal. PS, if we must go with the plated meal option, it will be the standard, chicken, veggie, starch for everyone!

    • Want to unite against bullying? It's easy. Wear orange! On Wednesday, October 23, 2019, color our nation, and even the world, in orange, showing that our society believes that no one child ever has to experience the physical and emotional pain of being purposefully hurt, harmed or humiliated. Send the message that every child deserves to feel safe from bullying while at school, online or in the community. Why the color orange? As Unity Day is held during October, orange is a color commonly identified with the month and the autumn season. It is also known as the color associated with "safety" and visibility. It is a color described as warm and inviting, and its vibrancy makes an impactful statement. Orange was also a color that was not being used by another widely known cause.
