Cookies, brownies, and cupcakes are just some of the delicious desserts we’ll be selling during our bake sale for the Ronald McDonald House. You can find us in the student cafe on Thursday, October 14th during your lunch period. Donate money to children in need and get some sweets as an added bonus. And if you don’t have a sweet tooth, you can still contact Mrs. Rafferty or Mrs. Lee in the counseling department to make a donation.
