Our Friday the 13th costume fundraiser will be next Friday, October 13th. This fundraiser will help cover the cost of baskets that will be raffled off at the Mother Daughter Tea. We are asking for students to pay $1 and teachers $3 if they would like to participate (highly encourage it!), or if you feel so inclined to make a donation if you do not feel comfortable wearing a costume to work. The social work team will be coming around Friday morning during 1st hour to collect the money from each classroom. Teachers will be provided an envelope the day before in your mailbox to put the money in. Please encourage participation as much as possible as this event encourages students to contribute to the success of their graduating class. NO MASKS, CLOWN COSTUMES, WEAPONS (Swords, Knives, Guns, etc..) or anything that disrupts the school day. If teachers can review these guidelines in your 6th hour class on Thursday to remind them that if anyone does not meet these guidelines they will be asked to take off or forfeit their costume.
