The Class of 2015 will be participating in the annual Senior to Senior Day on Wedensday, April 29.
The purpose of the event is to continue to say thanks to the community by proiding helping hands on odd jobs that anyone in the community may have. Our students have the opportunity to give back to their community, work with a variety of people, learn cooperative work skills, apply problem solving, and feel good about helping others.
If you have any questions or concerns, would like to sponsor a small group on that day, or have a job for us, please call 743-2061.
