Let Girls Learn Fundraiser

Dear Friends, Family, and Community Members:

Thanks to you, we raised over 3,000 dollars this year for The 7th Grader Fundraiser “Let Girls Learn.” In the past three years, the middle school has raised almost 8,000 for equal education and veterans’ rights.  Thank you for coming together as a community to help others and support such important causes.
Please see the attached letter to view “thank yous” from all the 7th graders.
On January 6th, let’s have our community come together for the rights of women and girls. Please wear your shirt and join our challenge.  Write a letter, email, or text to a girl or woman in your life encouraging them to be the best they can be.  Let January 6th be the day of the girl!
