📸 Carolina Photography will be at Banoak Elementary School to photograph CLASS/GROUP pictures on March 11. If you would like to order pictures, please return the order form and payment with your student on picture day. Or for your convenience, you may prepay for pictures online by going to www.carolinaphoto.net and entering JOB KEY: Q69RY669. The online prepay will be available until March 10. Please look for paper order forms to be sent home during the week of March 4.
❤️ Students brought home an envelope to raise money for the American Heart Association last week. All collections need to be turned in online or to Mrs. Gibson by Monday, March 4. The American Heart Association has given Banoak a great incentive to participate. If 50% of our students register online for the Kids Heart Challenge (just register, no donation needed) they will, along with US Games, donate a $500 give certificate to our PE program to buy new equipment. You can register at: heart.org/schools. Please consider registering online for this great cause. Don't forget, all students who complete Finn's Mission online will also be entered into the sweepstakes to win two Super Bowl tickets for 2025.
🚘 Lastly, Fred. T. Foard's Band Department will be hosting a car show on Saturday, March 23, from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm. All proceeds from this event will help the Tiger Band! Registration is $20 per entry. Registration will be open from 8:30-10:30 am. Burgers, hot dogs, BBQ plates, and BBQ by the pound will be for sale, along with a Silent Auction with a wide variety of items. This event is the same day as the Danner Tiger Prowl 5K, so make a day of it at Foard High School for two great causes!
Thank you and have a great evening!
Jordan Goodson, Principal
