Special thanks to our chamber choir singing the National Anthem, Teresa Champe decked in 80's attire leading Zumba with her kick team, and Drama who gave a great preview of their upcoming musical, Prom. We had a crew of parents and staff who helped take tickets, pick up and serve food, and monitor inflatables and games. I could not have run this without your help!!!!!  I know it is hard to come back after a long week and give up your Friday. I am incredibly grateful!  We also had both students and staff make many donations, buy shirts and go to spirit nights. Thanks to all because every little bit helped us reach this amount.  

Other Highlights: Topher made an appearance which seemed to cause quite the excitement with both UK and PLD students as well as our own singing star--Adithya Rajesh who spontaneously performed Bieber on stage. Our Student Council and Senior class have worked incredibly hard.
