Rock, Paper, Scissors Tournament!

Veterans Day is coming soon, and that means it’s time for McDowell students and staff to once again show our support to our local veterans in need. In the last few years, McDowell has been very successful in collecting canned food items to donate. This year, instead of collecting food, we would like to raise money to donate to the Military Veterans Resource Center.  We have set a goal to raise $800 to donate. The Military Veterans Resource Center will then use that money to purchase food for veterans.

In order to help with our fundraising efforts, McDowell Student Council will be hosting a Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament for McDowell Students next Friday, Nov. 1.  To encourage participation from ALL students, the entry fee to join the tournament will be just $1! You may also pay an additional $1 to go to the Loser’s round of the tournament in order to stay in the tournament.  Students must preregister for the tournament during lunch on either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday of next week.age

Thank you, veterans!

Happy Veterans Day!  These are pictures of MY favorite veteran, retired Staff Sergeant Kenneth H. Faerber, US Air Force.  My dad spent 20 years in the service, serving in the Korean Conflict and serving two tours during the Vietnam War.  Later he volunteered many hours for AMVETS, serving in the Honor Guard and volunteered his time to help veterans in many other aspects, as well.  He taught me to love my country, to respect the flag, and to appreciate all veterans and soldiers for their service.

This was always a special day for him, so today I honor all veterans, but especially him. <3young soldierIMG_2624021 (2)
