Tuesday, February 28, 2017 Day 2

Attention all students and staff: the Student-Faculty basketball game is this Friday March 3rd. Great job yesterday with the beginning of spirit week and color wars! Today is twin day and tomorrow is Neon Day – if it ain’t neon, it shouldn’t be on! Additionally, tickets for the game will be on sale in the cafeteria all week – single tickets are $5 and family tickets are $10. You can also purchase tickets at the door on Friday.

Throughout this week, we will be holding a fundraiser called Pie Wars! Pie Wars is a charity fundraiser for two important charities: Muscular Dystrophy Parent Project and Special Olympics! What each grade has to do is simple! We will be selling tickets for one dollar each! When you buy a ticket for $1, you put your name on it for a chance to be one of the three lucky winners The grade that buys the most tickets is the “winning grade.” Three students will be randomly chosen from that grade to be given the opportunity to throw a pie at their principal’s face! This event will be held at the Student Faculty Basketball Game at the halftime show on Friday March 3rd! We will announce the three students chosen on Friday! Winners can get free tickets to the basketball game as well! If you cannot attend the Student Faculty Basketball Game and you are chosen, you have the chance to give away your ticket, or ask for another student to be chosen, but please inform your principal if you are chosen and you cannot attend. Our goal is 1000 dollars! Thanks KMS!

This contest generates awareness of what an advanced manufacturing career may look like to our younger, tech savvy generation.
