The National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society recently sponsored the Fine Feathered Teacher fundraiser whose proceeds were donated to the Food for Friends Food Bank in Catawissa. According to NHS Adviser Mrs. Emily Karas, the fundraiser entailed students "voting" for a specific teacher to wear a turkey costume on the last day of school before Thanksgiving break. The students cast their votes by giving a monetary donation tagged to their teacher of choice. The teacher generating the most money was the winner. Congrats to this year's Fine Feathered Teacher-and good sport- 7th Grade ELA Teacher Ms. Rachel Moyer!
