Cash Raffle & Walk-A-Thon Update

Congratulations to the Cash Raffle winners from the 1st drawing, held on September 26: Student winner of $100 - Crystal Mort and Prize winner of $1000 - Bina Walsh.  The next Cash Raffle drawing will be held on November 1. 

Thank you to all of our students, families and staff for your support of the annual Walk-A-Thon! Together we raised $31,146.75 and achieved a 98% participation rate, which means that we met our goals and there will be NO SCHOOL on Friday, October 7!  A special "thank you" to Jennifer Buske who was the student who brought in the most sponsorship money and to Ms. Salerno's homeroom for bringing in the most money and having the highest student average. Well done!
