Teens for Jeans:
This week (February 9-13) is the last week to bring in lightly worn jeans to your third period class. The
jeans that are collected will be donated to homeless teens. Jeans can be colored or have rips as long as
they were purchased like that. The third hour that collects the most jeans will receive a pizza party!
