Seniors! Sign up for the Prifti Day of Service now! The Prifti Day of Service is an event that lets students make a meaningful impact in their community through a variety of projects. Students will meet at 9:30 am in the front of the school on Friday, May 27 and join your group. Students can sign up and choose a project at http://goo.gl/forms/YeZCWHIaIz, but act quickly because certain events have limited spots. Once the spots are full, the option will no longer be accessible on the form. This is a mandatory event, but what better way to celebrate the last day of your senior year?!

Donations of seeds, plants, and compost/mulch, would be greatly appreciated by May 26 and can be dropped off in the front and back entrance doorways of the high school.
