Jr. class parents please click the link to sign up to work in one or more of the basketball concession stands. This is our major fundraiser for the Jr. class.
 
Basketball Concessions Sign-Up

The Junior class is working all (middle, JV, and varsity) basketball concession stands to raise money for the Jr/Sr Prom this year. We need parents to volunteer, as well as students. Please look at the drop down menus and select any game that you could work. Make sure you select the shift (girls' or boys' game) that you would prefer to work for varsity, or you can sign up for both. :) JV and middle school games are only one shift. We appreciate any help we can get. This fundraiser will help out tremendously in our efforts to pay for the 2017 Jr/Sr prom. Any extra money raised will move on with the class for their Senior year.
Thanks,  
Shannon Davis
