Laker bands, choir show strong performances at festival
The Laker High School student council conducted a coin drive during Homecoming Week, which was designed to benefit disaster relief. It was a smashing success! The student council added a special twist to the coin drive – the pennies deducted points from the totals on count day. This, along with our school-wide competitive spirit, made for a fun competition and an overwhelming total.
Here are the totals, including the subtraction of pennies:
The grand total, without the subtraction of pennies, is $1,264.58. Congratulations to the fifth graders for being the top coin-collecting class in the whole district! They are going to receive a special reward for this achievement.
The seniors came in second overall, but they were the top coin collector for the secondary school, and some senior members of the varsity football team enjoyed a fun reward – slapping whipped cream pies in the face of their coach, Steve VerBurg! This took place during the Homecoming pep assembly (pictured below).
“We are excited to see this money benefit disaster relief in the south and are, once again, blown away by our school and community’s support,” said Student Council President Halle Keim. “It’s a great day to be a Laker!”
