Dear Upper School Students,
As all of you know, Hurricane Harvey has caused horrific damage in Texas. Student Council has organized a fundraiser to contribute to Organization Compassion, a charity that sends semi-trucks full of goods and supplies out to Houston and the surrounding area for relief. Our goal is to raise $1,000 per grade and if your grade reaches the goal, you will be rewarded two dress down days. This fundraising campaign will run through September 22nd. Your grade representatives will come by your advisories to collect your donations. Please don’t hesitate to ask your student council representatives if you have any questions.
