We are planning a very special annual event with our cross-town rivals, The Alexander Spartans. Once per year, these two schools will come together for a wrestling dual during the end of a school day in order to raise money for the Turn It Gold Foundation - a foundation committed to raising funds and awareness for childhood cancer. All students in the school building will be invited to the gymnasium for an assembly on December 13th (Wednesday) for this event. We are allowing all students to attend this event free of charge, but our goal is to earn donations for the Turn It Gold Foundation throughout following week.
Please consider sending a donation with your child or encouraging your child to donate to this worthy cause. We will have collection containers in each of the classrooms - where they can donate during A.C. period. There will also be a collection effort during the lunch periods and during the match itself.
Finally, if you are able, please consider attending this special wrestling match, which takes place at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, December 13th in the McAfee Gymnasium at Athens High School.
The Bell Schedule for Wednesday is as follows:
1st 7:45 - 8:25
2nd 8:28 - 9:04
3rd 9:07 - 9:43
5th 9:46 - 10:22
