SHS HOSA to Participate in Change for a Cure

The Smackover High School HOSA (Health Occupations Student Association) is teaming up with Grammi’s Gang again this year by sponsoring Change for a Cure Week, April 20-24.   The Smackover School District was the leading fundraiser for Grammi’s Gang last year. All donations go towards finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. We would greatly appreciate any donation you are willing to give.

Once again, each class at Smackover High School will be competing against one another (7-12). The class which raises the most money will be honored with pizza and a movie.

Students from HOSA will be going from room to room each day during 1st period to collect donations. Donations can also be made in the Smackover High School office.  Just be sure you designate which class you are donating for. Thanks in advance for your support!
