Because of the weather, Relay for Life will be moved to June 19. This will be on a Friday, and the event will begin at 7:00 pm and end at 12 pm. Fundraisers will be extended and a few more may be added. Mark your calendars for this summer event. Come support us in our efforts to put an end to cancer.
This week is the Teachers’ Benefit. Many of you are in it. For those of you that aren’t, come support your classmates and the benefit. The proceeds from the benefit go for a scholarship to give to a graduating senior each year. Who knows, you might be awarded the scholarship when you graduate. The program is this Thursday at 7:oo pm. Mrs. Bigbie and the students have been working very hard on the program. It’s centered around old TV shows and old commercials. I know that it’s going to be a really good program.
Don’t forget about the Relay for Life page that I want to build for our site. If you have pictures that you want to put on the page, bring them. Don’t forget about buying the cupcakes! The class that buys the most cupcakes will get a cupcake party. The money goes to Relay for Life to fight cancer! Also you can sign up for a painting class called Pocket Picasso, all supplies included, for $40.00. The class is called “Put a Lid on Cancer.” Registration is open till Friday, May 1st. To register, you can contact Mrs. Buchanan or me. The class will be held at the Electra Community Center on Monday, May 4th from 6:00 – 9:00. You can paint your plaque however you like. The proceeds will go to the Electra Relay for Life team -“Plowing Over Cancer.”
