We have Spirit, Yes we do, We have Spirit, We Give Back!

In addition to the fun, we will have during spirit week, we also want to use our energy to help others in need. Throughout Spirit Week we collected cereal boxes to donate to a local food pantry. At the end of the week, check out how many we collected. As you can tell, we had fun counting. :)

Get the Green Jello Ready!

We met our Goal! Now let's see if we can get Mr. Nicewarner to slide down into the Jello!

Goal = $1,500 and get Mr. Jarot to slip-n-slide into a pool of green jello!

Yes, you read that correctly. If the Anderson Community raises over $1,500, Mr. Jarot will get on his coolest swim shorts, run and slide down a soapy slip-n-slide and land in a pool of green jello on Field Day!. Now that's worth seeing. Not to mention, the importance of helping others. NEW ADDED BONUS! If we raise $2,000 Mr. Nicewarner will join Mr. Jarot sliding into the pool of green jello!
