Senior students, have you ever thought about helping those who have been devastated by a natural disaster?  If you have this passion, then this year’s mission trip might be for you.  The school board has been offering mission trips for over 20 years.  The mission trip is a unique experience that allows you to put your faith into action.  You will get the chance to work with other students from our school board for one week.  This opportunity to live your faith by helping others is open to all senior students.  The tentative location for this year’s mission trip is southern Louisiana to help in the relief of damage caused by over a decade of hurricanes and flash flooding.  If you are interested, please pick up an application form from Mrs. Padmore in the attendance office or from Mrs. Malecki in Room 203.  Sports are very limited, so apply as soon as possible.  Application are due back by October 1st at the latest.
