Mrs. Graves’ class will be hosting fundraisers to raise money to send care packages to Derek and his fellow Airmen/women. The troops are in need of gel inserts for their boots and shoes, small personal care items and some of their favorite (American) treats!

Today, the OUE students and staff can participate in a Hats for Heroes day. By donating $1 to the fundraising efforts, students and staff can wear a hat to work. Additional fundraisers include Snacks for Heroes, which will be held Tuesday (November 21) at lunch time. Snacks and drinks will be for sale for $0.50 with proceeds going towards the fundraising efforts.
