Let’s have some fun and raise money for the Make-A-Wish foundation. There are so many wonderful families locally and across the US who benefit from wishes every year. Let's show some love and support! Put your quarters, dimes, and nickels in your grade level jar at lunch to make your score go up. Put your pennies in other grade level jars at lunch to make their scores go down. Have fun with this! If you want to win then use pennies to decrease another grade level’s points! Work together! Have fun! The grade level with the most points wins 10 minutes extra at lunch! To add to the fun, you can watch to see which grade level is in the lead as the stars in the commons area travel across the sky!
Come out to cheer on the Lady Gold Wave in their first match of the season. The girls have been working hard to prepare for this season and would love to have your support as they take on Powdersville at 5:30 on Monday, August 28th.
