Challenge Day Donations

Challenge Day is a social and emotional learning program that offers students an opportunity to ignite a shift toward empathy, inclusivity, and greater school connectedness.  It is partially funded by the PTSA and extra donations are needed to hold the event.
Challenge Day will include both Sophomore and Junior students this year on two separate dates. Junior Challenge Day will be held in September and Sophomore Challenge Day will be in January. Donations made last year have been rolled over to this year's event to cover the cost for Juniors.  Additional donations are still needed to offset the cost of providing the program to Sophomores.

Athletic Boosters

Athletic Boosters is a non-profit group comprised of parents, grandparents, community members, alumni, and teachers.   We strive to support our athletic teams through the purchase of uniforms, equipment, and coach training.
 

For additional fundraising, Athletic Boosters has partnered with NFHS Network to offer discounted annual passes to view live internet broadcasts of games on the football field and in the gym (and many away games, too) - great to share with grandparents!  Each NFHS Annual pass is a $69.99 value.  Discount offered during Back to School membership drive sign-ups only.

 

NFHS Network info at https://nfhsnetwork.com/.  NFHS Network passes to be delivered via email before first game of the Fall sports season.
