  Advanced Archers Shoot for St. Judes 

Before heading into winter break, the Arete Prep Advanced Archery team showed a strong sense of citizenship and community by hosting a "fun shoot" benefiting St. Judes Children's Research Hospital. Our archers raised $310 for this great cause. Great job Coach Portillo, archers, and families!
