The first goal is to bring our community together and have fun.  This year the school started a new program and their are people from 3 communities combined into one school now.  We are trying to get to know each other and bond so we all feel like we belong to this school together.  Secondly, it’s a fundraiser.  We plan to get everything donated (venue, food, drinks, silent auction items, etc) so there will be minimal costs up front.  It’s a public high school and we have a lot of low income families.  Because of this, we are not allowed to ask our families to pay for anything.  We can’t even ask families to pay an athletic fee if their student wants to play a sport.  So, we have a lot of needs.

Athletics: uniforms, official/ref fees, ambulance fees (required at every football game), resurfacing of the footbal/soccer field because it has holes and rocks everywhere, bleachers, etc…

Academic: calculators, technology, books, art supplies, clay, frames, band and orchestra instrument repair, etc…

The money will go to the PTSA, and then we will talk to our principal to see which items are most needed at the time.  There is talk of narrowing down the focus and raising money for specific items, but that hasn’t been decided yet.  We just decided to do this fundraiser a few weeks ago.
