We need your help!

Our United Way campaign has been a RAGING success as well! We have raised well over our goal, a 10% increase from last year's amount. We will continue to take quarters from students through October 31. The winning class wins a pizza party!
This week will kick off our CHANGE WARS, also sponsored by United Way. Each day, students will bring in change for our TL Hanna jar, since we are a Hanna feeder school. The high school that raises the most money for their team wins the CHANGE WAR and the opposing team's principal must wear the rival's jersey and pom poms to the rivalry game! I personally know Mr. Kory Roberts and would love to see him in black and gold! :) So, let's give for a great cause!
Duke TIP Scholars
Congratulations to the following students who have qualified to join the Duke University Talent Identification Program's 4th-6th Grade Talent Search. Students must score in the top 5 percent on their most recent MAP or SC Ready test to be eligible to join. Hats OFF to these high achievers!
