Hey Senators, listen up. Ms. Troike’s classes are working on a fundraiser for the Wounded Warriors Project. Nearly 4 out of every 5 warriors surveyed have a friend who was seriously wounded or killed in action.  Tuesday we raised $107.14 THANK YOU for your donations and please help us reach our goal of $500.00 for the brave men and women who fought for our freedom.  Please donate TODAY during your lunch shift.  We’ll be in the hallway between the cafeteria and commons.
