On Wed, Feb. 18th students can pay a $1 to wear a hat for the day. All money goes to the Pennies for Patients campaign.

On Friday, Feb. 20 students can pay a $1 to use electronic devices during lunch for that day only (middle school students only.)

Throughout the Pennies for Patient drive students can purchase a card for $1 to write their name on and hang up in the main lobby in the lower building. Student government workers will be selling the cards daily.
