Denton Door Fundraiser:
Stanton Jr./Sr. High School will be having a fundraiser to raise money for Denton Roberts. The fundraiser will consist of filling your ‘door’ with dollar bills the week of December 12-16th. For each $1 a student brings, a fake dollar bill will be given to place on the door. Students are encouraged to bring more than $1 in order to reach the goal. The class(es) to reach their goal of filling their door to the designated amount (which has been equally set for each class) will be able to choose ONE class period to miss for the day. Students will be exempt from any assignments that will be handed out on the ‘skip period’, Tuesday, December 20th.
Mrs. Erickson and Mrs. Stephens will chaperone the class(es) that win the fundraising contest. Students will go to the Viking Center during the class period. Students may play games, hang out, etc. The winning class(es), is the class that reaches their designated amount first. If the winning class reaches and exceeds their goal, Mrs. Stephens and Mrs. Erickson will bring treats for the students to eat while at the Viking Center.
The winner will be announced at the basketball game on Friday, December 16th.
The Stanton Booster Club has ordered more Stanton clothing just in time for Christmas. Please stop by the elementary school office and take a look!! The Stanton Booster Club would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Thank you so much for all the support throughout the year!!
