It’s happening… seniors and staff take each other on in a kickball game this Thursday at 3:30pm on the Athletic Field. Seniors – you sign up on the sheet on the Activities Office door to put your name in a lottery-type drawing for a spot on the team. If you win a spot on the team, you are required to make a $10 donation to the Ecuador Relief Fund.

Staff are also required to make a $10 donation to the Ecuador Relief Fund. For those attending the game, we are suggesting that you make a contribution to the Ecuador Relief Fund. Let’s make this a great community event and help Ecuadorians as well!

Dig out your loose change! Student Council is having a “penny war” between grade levels this week. The funds will go to disaster aid for the earthquake in Ecuador. There will be one jar for each grade level, in which you can put money during lunches. The goal is to put money into the jars of other grades. The grade with the least amount of money in their jar wins. The winning grade gets a surprise prize.
