December 7, 2017

Jeri Ferguson’s Civics class at Kimball High School continue working to make a difference. They hope to raise awareness of current military members and veterans.

According to KHS senior, Justine Heeg, the Civics class is organizing a fundraiser this week to design and make an insignia for each branch of the military to be displayed around the school.

Funraising events will include; allowing students to wear hats every day, and also wear pajamas on Wednesday, if the student donates a certain amount of money.

Staff will also be able to wear jeans everyday if they also donate to the fundraiser.

Kimball High School will host a dodgeball tournament, scheduled for Monday, Dec. 18, during homeroom, taking place from 10:30-11.

For those students who wish to not participate in the dodgeball tournament, the civics class will also organize a spoons tournament at the same time.

Additionally, the students are creating care packages to send to soldiers during the holidays. According to Heeg, “The students are being separated into each class, also adding teachers to the mix.”

Care packages will be put together in class on Monday, Dec. 11.
