VOLLEY FOR A CURE – We have had tremendous support for the Volley for a Cure (to fight breast cancer) this week.  Our building has been filled with hot pink t-shirts.  Waterford and Fort Frye teamed up for their volleyball game Monday night.  Proceeds from the game will be donated to the cancer research fund.  The Student Council sold pink ribbons and bracelets and are sponsoring a Penny Drive all this week.  Please donate your spare change for this worthy cause.  The grade level bringing in the most money will be treated to popcorn and a movie.  Thanks for your support!
