No Shave November is almost here! One of the easiest ways to show your support for those researching a way to find a cure for cancer is to not shave for an entire month. Take all that money you saved on razors and shaving cream and donate it for cancer research. Does your scratchy face bother the women in your life? Do they find it adorable? Find out and raise some money along the way. Ladies are welcome to participate too...we have a couple of ideas about how to make it easier for you to raise money too... in a less disgusting way. We will be having the kick-off meeting for No Shave November on Tuesday after school in Mr. Lightfoot's room, #330. We will be selling t-shirts this year for those of you who still want to stay clean-shaven.

Hey, Hey JSA! We are having a meeting today. Come for food and fun and bring your friends!
