I hope to see our entire student body at the Celtic Connections sponsored “Spring Fling” tomorrow after school on the football field. The event begins at 3:15pm and concludes at 5pm. Student activities include hamster ball races, sumo suit battles, inflatable boxing gloves and a wipeout course. Admission is covered with your activity pass or $3. Tickets for will be sold for $1 each during lunches starting Thursday (or at the event). Games and snacks will cost 1-3 tickets. Add in the food, snacks, music and fun times with friends and it doesn’t get much better!
Raising awareness to healthy relationships and making healthy physical and emotional choices is one of the primary goals of the Celtic Connections group. Alongside the Celtic Connections sponsored Spring Fling, our 8th grade students have initiated an opportunity to call attention to the wonderful work of Choices, a Central Ohio shelter for battered women and children. A portion of the proceeds from Spring Fling will be donated to Choices. Also, a representative from the organization will be attending to answer questions and provide information. Please ask your son or daughter to find out more about how your family may be able to support Choices. Finally, and also part of the grade 8 student initiative, please see the opportunity below for moms and daughters to enroll in a self- defense class. I hope to see you there!
