As part of the celebration, students collected nine volt batteries that will be distributed to our three local fire departments. The hope is that the fire departments will be able to pass out the batteries to local families as a reminder to change out their smoke detector batteries. Students donated a total of 271 nine volt batteries and 15 D batteries.
Mr. Rupperts home room won a free Chick Fil’ A meal for bringing in the most batteries. The faculty, staff, and students want to thank Saubels of Shrewsbury for donating the bags used to collect the batteries and also Chick Fil’ A for generously donating the wonderful meal for the winning home room.
We would also like to thank Citizens Volunteer Fire Department fo bringing a fire truck to the school on Friday the 14th. Students were given the opportunity to see the fire truck and talk with some of our local emergency responders at the end of their lunch period.
