Junior high class council raised money to assist the Townville Kennel.

Junior high students have been raising funds by selling pizzas and pizza kits. The money is not only for their field trip,

which will be organized by the class council, but also for hungry animals in need.  “The morning we were supposed to be starting our Little Caesar’s fundraiser, on the news they had talked about the Townville Kennel and that if they didn’t get animal food, they were going to have to shut their doors and who knows what would’ve happened to the animals?” said Mrs. Nicole DeFrances, class council adviser.  So the council decided to help out by giving part of their fundraiser money as well as other donations like pet food. Many students are pleased with this addition to the fundraiser.  “This fundraiser is good because not only are we helping ourselves, but we’re helping someone else,” said class council vice president Chloe Luchansky. “I don’t know how much we’ve collected so far, but at least we’ve got some food and for every item sold, one dollar will be donated.  I feel like we’re going to have a nice chunk to send to them,” said DeFrances.  The pick up date for the pizza kits is October 29, and all orders must be into Mrs. DeFrances as soon as possible. The junior high is more than willing to give away part of the earnings to help others in need. Eighth-grader Sydney Fredericks said, “I feel as if even though we aren’t the biggest school, the little things that we can do, make a difference.”
