Class of 2026

The Class of 2026 is responsible for the homecoming dance in the fall of 2023. In order to provide a great experience for the whole school, the class must generate funds to plan and implement the dance (raising money for homecoming has always been the responsibility of the freshman class). Our goal is for as many freshmen students (or their families) to donate $5 to the Freshmen Five Fundraiser. This money will be imperative for a successful 2023 homecoming dance.

Each student who donates $5 will be listed on the Class of 2026 banner that will be displayed in the school rotunda all next school year. Look for details in your email from 99Pledges to donate. Thanks in advance for your support!
