Heifer International - Schoolwide Service Project
Over the past month the Student Leadership Council has been working on this year's schoolwide service project. This year they will be working with Heifer International, an organization that gives animals to families in need. Similar to last year's service project, Pennies for Patients, they will collect students' spare change. Each grade level chose three animals (Pre-K only chose one), and each animal will have its own box. In each grade level, the animal that has the most money will be the one that level's total amount of money will be used for. For example, if the box for goats gets the most money, the money in the sheep and pig boxes will be pooled with the money for goats. The fundraising begins Monday, April 23 and will culminate Friday, May 11. The animals that each grade level chose are:
Pre-K: Water Buffalo
Elementary: Trees, Honeybees and Cows
Middle School: Pigs, Sheep, and Goats
High School: Cows, Goats, and Rabbits
At the end of May we will have one final fundraising event. The event will feature student-made art that focuses on the animals of Heifer International. Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Congratulations Syler!
For the ninth year in a row, Syler Peralta-Ramos (8th grade) won a ribbon in the Federal Junior Duck Stamp Design Program and Contest.
