Staff Jeans Day Opportunities – $1 per day – Raising money for:

In light of the recent tragedy that has hit the community of Kokomo we would like to hole two $1+ Jeans Days next week.  On Tuesday and Wednesday you may wear jeans if you pay a $1 donation to the office.
 Where will my donation go?
–          Mrs. Luna’s husband, Jeremy, is the principal of Taylor Elementary near Kokomo and one of his teachers was directly affected by the tornadoes.  We would love to brighten her day with a gift card.
–          Reese, Elle, and Ty Phares are students at our school and their grandmother is a long-time kindergarten teacher at Elwood Haynes elementary in Kokomo.  Many of the lower income housing units and apartments that house a lot of students from Elwood Haynes live were heavily damaged by the tornadoes.  We would like to donate a check to the school in order to allow them to serve their families as they see fit. 

7 Habits Student Video – At a convenient time for your class,  please play this for students at some point this week.
