Jeans for a Dollar Fundraiser
This past Wednesday we had our first
Jeans for a cause
fundraiser. Jeans for a Cause is a service that our school does to support those within our community near or far and encourages our students to do the same. Students and staff had a chance to pay $1 (or more) to wear
jeans and a uniform shirt for the day. This month students raised money to support those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Thanks to the generosity of HSA students and staff together we raised $464.01 for the
Cross in support of those affected by the recent hurricanes. The homeroom who donated the most money,
8Yale, won a dress down day, ice cream treat and a battle ball challenge on Friday. The homeroom who came in second,
8Cornell, played the winning team in Battle Ball.
Thank you all for your generous donations. We are excited to have so many charitable individuals thinking of others in their time of need.
So far it has been an exciting start to the school year. Our first state test are out of the way, students have settled into their classes, and classrooms are abuzz with continues learning and discussion. We are so proud of our students and their accomplishments thus far and we encourage them to expand their interest outside of the classrooms. Next week marks the start of our after school clubs. From Anime Club to Multicultural Club there is something for everyone. We have over a dozen clubs for those who love to read to those who are interested in sports. This year we will also be launching our string orchestra program headed by Mr. Spottswood (club has certain requirements). For more information and list of clubs, please refer to the bulletin board across from the conference room in the main hall.
Note: Each club will meet once a week after school from 2:45pm to 3:45pm. Students must have arranged a ride home before they stay after school for clubs.
