Hey Senators, guess what Ms. Troike’s classes are doing?  We are raising funds for the Wounded Warriors.  Let me tell you a little bit about Wounded Warriors.  The Wounded Warriors Project is to benefit military personnel that have lost their lives or limbs in the battle for your freedom.  Our goal at Springfield High is to raise $500.00. So please go in your pockets and donate as much as you can.  Thanks you for all you do senators and see you on Wednesday during both lunch shifts near the snack cart.
