Who is EMPOWERED to eat pizza?

For only $5 you can get two slices of pizza, lemonade, and a dessert if you come to the sad meeting on Monday!! You can prepay on Friday outside foundation hall! This is a great way for students to meet other people who are making good decisions, and to spend time with friends in an interactive and educational way. We are looking forward to seeing you all at the meeting so you can be empowered to get involved in helping the community.

Come join the EMPOWER club in helping students to make good decisions, and again for only a little bit of money you get a nice lunch.

Be There, and Be EMPOWERED!

 

Envirothon will be having our first meeting during lunch on Friday October 3rd in Mrs. Mattsson’s Room (630), where we will go over the basics of Envirothon, upcoming opportunities, and our goals for the year.  Please contact Mimi Wahid with any questions!
