Raise money for the Eichler's! Mr. Luebke will shave his head?


Attn Celina High Schoolers!: We want to raise money for the Eichler's since they lost their house to a fire this weekend. If we can raise $3000 by Friday, Mr. Luebke will shave his head at the assembly! Start spreading the word and getting that money in! Checks can be made to the Eichler's and dropped off in the office. Students will also be around during advisory Wednesday and Thursday to collect money. Thanks!

How many of you would like to see Mr. Luebke shave his head? If you answered yes, this is your dream come true. A family in need could really use some help because of a house fire this weekend. If CHS can raise $3,000 by this Thursday, Mr. Luebke will shave his head at Friday's assembly. Let's remember Rachel's Challenge and pass it on :) Let's do this!

The goal of the Commission to install a treatment train on every tributary entering the lake thus removing phosphorus and other detrimental nutrients that feed toxic blue green algae. To dredge the mouths of the incoming tributaries creating islands and removing nutrient laden silt already in the lake bottom." [Pepsi Refresh Project]
