NJHS Fundraiser Event

NJHS will be selling snowball fight tickets December 10th - December 20th during lunches for $1 each. The way Snowball fight works is each ticket counts as a vote for a teacher of your choice. The teacher with the most votes at the end of December 20th will get pied in the face during their lunch on December 21st. For each ticket you purchase, your name will be entered in a drawing to be the pie-thrower.

As an added bonus, this year we are doing a PIE THE PRINCIPAL challenge! The lunch shift that raises the most money will get to see Ms. Edwards get pied!

All the money goes to Team Toby, which raises funds for the Ronald McDonald House. You can learn more about Team Toby here:
