HS DAILY – Friday, April 6, 2018



Good morning, students and teachers!

Starting next week Monday, there will be a donation box placed in the foyer for HOPE Cambodia. This time, we are focusing on fundraising for wells in Cambodia.

By receiving a well, Cambodian families will be able to improve their lifestyle drastically, enabling children to be able to go to schools and breaking the poverty cycle.

Please contribute! All donations are much appreciated.
