Just a reminder that our fundraiser this year is in full swing. We are partnering with Windmill Gardens to sell poinsettias (various colors and sizes), wreaths, swags, and garlands. This fundraiser is to help offset many of the costs related to student activities (clubs, athletics, student government...).
