Hats for Hurricane Relief

This year we will be having a Hat Day on October 31st. Students will be invited to wear a hat on the 31st as a fundraiser for Hurricane Relief. Any student is welcome to wear a school appropriate hat on the 31st with a suggested donation of $2. All of these funds will be collected and donated to a Hurricane Relief organization to support kids and families who have been affected by hurricanes from earlier this month.

We are excited to see how much money we can raise! Any hat will work...you can even create your own!
