Palancas, retreat, etc.

Hey guys. From Gaby: Please submit the palanca letters to the president of the section of the person you’re writing to by next Friday.

So you know who you’re supposed to approach:

Be – Adrian B.; Cs – Cara E.; Li – Alvin L.; Mg – Joaq A.; K – Courtney M.; Rb – me (Mia); Na – Carl U.; Sr – Nico R.

For those people who haven’t paid yet, you can give them straight to Ma’am Docto or just pay on the day of the retreat. 🙂

Oh and btw, may Homeroom tayo sa Friday ah. Last day before sembreak. 🙂

P.S. Napansin ko lang ang daming nagtatanong kung ano ang palanca letter. :)) Well, eto yung ‘formal’ definition: A palanca letter is one that is sent to the candidates and team, informing them of the prayers and sacrifices that you are offering to God on their behalf.

So yeah, I guess kayo na ang bahala kung ano na gusto niyo ilagay diyan. Usually, it’s supposed to be a letter of thanks, and a way to make the recipient feel appreciated. Pwede rin siguro mga apologies or other things you couldn’t really say in person. 😛 Good luck!



  1. “candidates and team”


    In grade 6, some people just wrote a plus column and a minus column then listed all your traits. It was the easy way of getting out of a palanca requirement, and pretty useless, but just saying.

  2. […] Guys, gawin niyo na mga palancas niyo during the sembreak. Write to your friends… you can even write to people na hindi niyo super close. Wag tayo tamarin. Hehe. Writewritewrite. Again, give the palancas to the president of the section of the person (NOT directly to the person) on Friday (1st day of the retreat), during the assembly time. Presidents are listed in the post about palancas. […]
