Alumni Tent -- Urgent Need

Dear Parents and Faculty,


Due to a death in the family, the caterer that was going to graciously provide the majority of our food for the alumni tent will be unable to do so.  (This is for the Homecoming game Friday, October 18.)


Because of this, we are urgently requesting any help you may be able to provide for the alumni tent.  This can be in the form of monetary donations or food.  As for the food needed, we already have all desserts and drinks that are needed.


Needed items: finger foods, appetizers, mini sandwiches, etc.


We realize this is a last minute request and many of you may not be able to help, but we appreciate any and all help you may be able to offer.


If you are able to help, please let Mrs. Price know as soon as possible.  All food should be delivered Friday evening around 6:00-6:30 pm.  If you need to drop it off earlier, please drop off at the front office, marked "Alumni Tent."


Again, thank you for all your support for our beloved alumni.

  • will I be college-ready? life-ready?
  • why do we say "mind, body, and soul"?

Come out for a time of question and answers.
