Wow!  What this school and this community were able to do in just two short days is truly amazing. We issued a challenge to raise $2000 in two days to support pediatric cancer research.  Mr. Buege agreed to shave his head should we meet that goal.  We are excited to announce that we surpassed that goal and raised over $3,500!  Students emptied their piggy banks, teachers matched homeroom donation amounts, and families donated online.  Thank you, Mr. Buege, for leading the way with our SERVICE virtue.
