Regular Order, Day 2

  • This week we are raising money for the Mission Drive through a drive for Fresh Kicks Fridays. Each homeroom that raises $250 collectively will be awarded two fresh kick Fridays on 3/24 and 3/31 (the Fridays after exams).  Bring money into your homeroom all this week and give to your homeroom faculty member or rep. Homerooms that make this minimum amount will be issued a bracelet to be worn on Fresh kicks day along with your Fresh kicks. Shoes must cover the toes and have backs. Slides, flip-flops, and sandals are not allowed. Students may wear Crocs, but they must be in ‘sport mode.’ White socks may be worn in place of black socks, but socks must be worn.
  • Brackets for the March Madness Mission Drive Challenge are being sold this week during lunch in the Commons.  The cost is $5 per bracket. To enter, simply pay your fee and provide your name and email address to the basketball coaches at the table.  A link to the Bracket Challenge will be emailed to you by March 16. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 finishers, including a top prize of a $50 gift card to the Blue Jay Cafe.
