On September 9, the junior varsity spirit squads began selling raffle tickets as a Middle School fundraiser for pediatric cancer research. Raffle tickets give fifth through ninth graders a chance to win the opportunity to throw a whipped cream pie at a lucky faculty member during the junior varsity pep rally on September 26. Raffle tickets cost $2 for one or $3 for two.
