COMMUNITY SERVICE: upcoming opportunities

Just because the school year is winding down doesn't mean there aren't incredible opportunities to serve the community and make a difference.

Denim Day
The first Friday of every month is a designated denim day for students who donate $5 to our monthly causes. The cause in May was the Kristie's Foundation which is dedicated to providing support, assistance and cherished moments to critically ill children and their families. Kristie’s focus is on end-of-life care for children and support for the family that loves them. For more information about Kristie's visit their website at Because of a generous donation from our National Honor Society members, the May Denim Day raised $484 for Kristie's.

This Friday, June 3rd is a Denim Day to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs. Mrs. Kunkle will be at the ticket booth before school to collect your donations. Thank you for your support!
