Junior High students participate in a half-court shootout as part of the JH Student Council fundraiser for the family of Lora Lovings. Thanks Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Ghere for helping! The fundraiser continues through Monday! Let's continue to show some love for Lora
Love for Lora
As many of you know, Lora Lovings is facing some challenging times. Her husband Rob is battling cancer. Lora has maintained her smiling face in our cafeteria despite these troubles. With the holiday season coming up, let's band together and make a difference for Lora and her family.
From now through Tuesday, November 24, Junior High Student Council will collect change before school and during lunch. Each grade will compete!
The grade which collects the most money will win a movie afternoon in December. Popcorn and drinks will be provided.
So search the bottom of your backpack and collect some change from the dryer and let's show some love for Lora.
