RELAY FOR LIFE - Students have enjoyed wearing hats, sun glasses, pajama pants, wacky hair and crazy clothes all day for a small fee (50 cents each day). "Pie in the face" was a huge hit on Tuesday. Don't forget to wear yellow on Friday to represent childhood cancers. Bring extra change Friday for many activities during Relay, and put sunscreen on your child as a prevention - the forecast looks great so we will be outside.
