After many weeks of asking around, we found one gift idea that gives a meaningful and valuable gift to the school. So the current goal for Student Class Gift is heat lamps for the Pub that will likely be installed next trimester (if we raise enough money).
We will have a collection box at Regional Night. Please donate!
