    Deadline for reserving a table for DC Fundraiser Rummage Sale.


    We will tentatively hold a rummage sale in the school cafeteria on a date yet to be determined.  The sale will coincide with the Annual Community Rummage Sale at Donner Center to encourage attendance by the community.  Students will need to notify Mr. Lax of their interest in participating in the rummage sale by Friday, March 9.  This will reserve a table for them at the event.  Students will bring items in from home to sell the day of the event.  The money they raise will be taken home with them and hopefully applied to the trip or used as spending money.
