Some of the Schalmont Middle School faculty and staff are willing to go to great lengths for a good cause.
As part No Shave November, a few good sports agreed to grow a beard throughout the month. The twist was that students would then be able to vote on "Shave it or Save it," as a way to raise money for the Middle School Weekend Backpack program, which provides food to students and their families.
At a cost of 25 cents per vote, students were encouraged to
choose which one of the four fashionable options the participants
would then sport on Dec. 1. Options included:
- the anchor
- the handlebar and chin puff
- the Fu Manchu
The students raised about $200, while selecting muttonchops as the look of the day.
As good sports, the participants showed up at school today sporting either mutton chops, or the runner up, the Fu Manchu.
Thank you to everyone who participated to help out community!
