Congratulations to the following students who have met the Community Service Challenge for this year. These students have completed 30 or more hours. As a reward, they will receive FREE DRESS for the entire month of May.


To be secure and be able to identify these students, we will be providing them with a wristband (see photo) and the students must wear it every day. You can also use the roster on this email to help you identify these students…we have a few students that are very close to completing this challenge and we will be updating the roster.
