PTC Club and Event Happenings:

Jog-A-Thon Committee

Yesterday, the Jog-A-Thon committee hosted a Pep Rally!  There was cheering, dancing and a lot excitement in that gym.  Not only were these volunteers excited but so was their hair.

When the students heard that if they reach their fundraising goal of $30,000, Mrs. Batsell and Mr. Young would be silly stringed in front of the whole school the entire crowd of students roared with excitment!

Let’s do this TIGERS!!
