NEWS YOU CAN USE

Hey Panthers,


The I Spy game continues!! As you casually walk through the school use the following clues to help you find a surprise....


"I spy something Kool, something Kute, something Kardashian."


Once you find the ticket you will have to bring 2 friends with you to my office to complete a task. You and your friends will receive a free t-shirt. Good luck! Have a great week and if you need anything, please stop by my office.
