Candy Fundraiser

On Wednesday we wrapped up our fundraiser of "The World's Finest Chocolate" with a glow dance. The gym was decorated with ultraviolet tape and black lights. As students entered the gym they received a glow necklace and some glow tape. They played dodgeball with ultraviolet balls, danced to some of the most popular songs, and many wonprizes. On top of all of that, our top sellers also walked away with handfuls of cash!


Thank you to everyone that helped with the fundraiser. It was a great success!
