Deadline for Grand Canyon and Cornhole Tournament

Happy Wednesday, Sharks!

A quick update for two items whose deadlines are fast approaching.

  1. The Grand Canyon registration is due this Friday. Information about the trip can be found at https://trips.grandclassroom.com/Trip/Index/Sutherland2015
  2. The 2014 cornhole tournament and student raffle takes place on November 21st. We have a huge goal this year of trying to raise $2,000 for the HEADStrong Foundation. This is a group dedicated to funding cancer research. Sutherland has tried to help raise money each November for the past four years for this group and we need your help. Please visit our parent site at https://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/SutherlandMiddleSchool/lacrosse-mustache-madness-2014 to see more about our efforts. Also, we have the big raffle that includes Game Stop gift cards, ITunes gift cards, and other assorted contributions from the community. This year, we also have a grand prize of tickets to the Redskins/Eagles football game. Students are able to buy tickets for $1.00 at lunch all this week and next. Finally, the cornhole tournament is open to parents as well. Mr. Criscione can register students at lunch, or if you want to register yourself, you can send him an e-mail at jcriscione@k12albemarle.org. This is a great chance to come out and spend two hours at school with your kids. This will be on November 21st from 4 – 6 PM. The more, the better! Come on out and help us reach our goal.

Thanks!
