All students' names are in a magic hopper and Mr. Hicks will pull several out each day. If the student, whose name is pulled, has their pin on they will win a special prize. If the teacher’s name is pulled the entire class is rewarded. We will also be participating in an all school food drive for the needy in our immediate area.
