  • Would you be my Valentine? The WMS SCA is holding a Valentine’s Day Fundraiser — “Crush for your Crush” — starting TODAY! For just 2-dollars, you can send an anonymous can of Crush soda to your “Crush” — or special someone. Recipients will get their Crush on Valentine’s Day next TUESDAY — and for just 1-dollar they can learn the identity of their secret admirer. OR — the sender can INSURE the Crush for an extra buck — and the recipient will NEVER KNOW who it came from.
    .
    For more information, scan the QR codes on signs posted around the school. Order forms — and money — may be returned to your TA teacher or the SCA advisors: Mr. Peacock or Mr. Tagert. All money orders must be received by this Friday.
