A BIG Panther THANK YOU to those faculty and staff who agreed to be pied today by a Senior who has completed his/her FAFSA.
Your Middle School Interact Club is in its final week of the Al-Van Humane Society Adoption & Community Education Center service project. To date, the club has collected 341 pounds of food, litter, and toys that will be donated to the animals at Center on March 1st. The team is making one final push in the last week of February to get additional items donated. The winning advisory will earn an ice cream and soda party. Right now, Mrs. Overacker's class is in the lead, with Mrs. Henderson's class in second place and Mrs. Brush's class in third place. Please send any donations with your middle school student this week! The animals at the Al-Van Humane Society Adoption & Community Education Center need our help! THANK YOU !
