SPECIAL HAT DAY: There will be a special hat day this Thursday, February 11th, in support of the Kubasiak family of Ravenna. Please donate a dollar or more and wear your favorite hat all day long. Don't want to wear a hat, but still want to help? Donations to the family are still more than welcome. NHS volunteers will be in front of the Art room collecting donations before school on Thursday, or you can donate money to Mrs. Wolfe or Mrs. Younts any time before then. Let's show the Ravenna community and the Kubasiak family how Holton loves!
