PTSA, the Goodwill Drive and Grad Night Buses

Please support the PTSA and bring things to donate for the Goodwill Drive. Talk to your parents, your neighbors, and other folks who live on your street.  Bring the donations in boxes, not bags.   

PTSA will help us with the ever increasing cost of bus prices, but we need to support them too.

I also am looking for a committee of students to encourage and remind seniors and go on May 3rd and help the PTSA.

The May 3rd event is from 9AM to 1:30PM. It is a Saturday. Email me if you are interested.

Thanks!
