Last Chance for Tickets!

Has your student ever dreamed of pieing a teacher? Well here is their chance! Starting Monday, March 27th, the Prom Committee will be selling raffle tickets for a chance to pie a teacher. Tickets are $1.00. Students may buy as many tickets as they want. The more tickets they buy, the better chance they will have to pie a staff member.
