Art Club: "Beauty and the Beast" by Athea Summers



FBLA week is next week. We decided we wanted to have a little competition. Staff will give tickets to students ALL WEEK for good deeds, kindness, hard work, improvement on classwork-anything staff feels like should be rewarded. Students must keep up with any tickets they receive. On Friday tickets will be turned in to Mrs. Crowder. The student with the most will receive $10! The grade with the most will receive ice cream!
