And so we begin week five of this school year. The time passes so quickly. All sports teams are on a roll, and activities and clubs are full speed ahead as well.
During lunch on Wednesday, you could win the opportunity to pie an administrator. All you have to do is buy a raffle ticket from a Link Leader before or after school or at any break. Tickets are $1 a piece or 6 for $5. If you win, you will have your choice to pie one of the following administrators: Mr. Rodina, Mr. Chambers or our new principal Ms. Fuson. There will be three winners chosen and each will get to pie one of the three administrators who have volunteered. Tickets can be purchased today from a Link Crew leader through Wednesday. Faculty members are more than welcome to buy tickets as well.
