ANNOUNCEMENTS
BOOSTERTHON FUNDRAISER SURVEY....THE RESULTS ARE IN
Our Boosterthon Fundraiser Survey is complete, and we are excited to announce that the Restroom Renovation project received the most votes!  Many thanks to all of our Japonica students who participated in Boosterthon, and to those parents who voted on how best to use the proceeds.  The contractor is already busy preparing drawings and making suggestions for one set of restrooms on the Japonica Campus.  We will keep you updated on our progress!



"WILD" CAT SENDOFF!
Our Japonica Campus students gave our boys varsity basketball team an incredible sendoff for the South Regionals this morning!  We arranged for the team's bus to drive down Azalea Road where our students lined the school/church yard with signs, shakers and cheers!  The bus stopped at the start of the line-up, Coach Davis and the players got off and walked the length of the Pride Line getting hugs, high-fives and some serious love!  They will play tonight at 7:30 pm at the Dothan Civic Center.

This must be done on the same day as your scheduled donation appointment. Visit www.redcrossblood.org/RapidPass


A few things you should know:
