Help Promote School Spirit!

Our Tiger Pride Points system was put in place 3 years ago to help promote school spirit. It is a fun way to support the students’ activities/sports, dress up during spirit days, and provides an extension to an already positive school culture. With this, students can earn prizes based on the points they accumulate throughout the semester. That prize money has to come from somewhere and in the midst of a global pandemic, fundraising to keep such programs going has been a struggle. We typically raise our money on campus; therefore, that poses the question, "How will we make up for not being able to hold many fundraisers the end of Spring 2020 semester, and now into the Fall?" We need your help! Tiger Pride Points support ALL students on campus, not just Scream team. This is simply the donation page/account we use to support all students. This is taking the place of many fundraisers to continue providing rewards and activities all students have the opportunity to earn.
