Thanks to your generosity, we exceeded our goal to raise $2,000 for a well in Nicaragua! So far this year, we have raised $2,624.89. Because of that, we will have a late start on Monday, March 17. And…the 11th grade class earned an out-of-uniform day because they had the LEAST amount of money in their jar (remember, the class with the least amount won). Juniors beat out sophomores by having just $2.62 less. Thank you for all of your support!

Also, on Thursday alone, we were able to remove 150 plastic bottles from the waste stream. Thank you for your efforts to use reusable water bottles.
