Tonight is the Pink Out game against Northern.  Don’t forget to bring items for the Fox Box.  The Fox Box Project is in memory of Norrix student Ethan Fox who passed away from Osteosarcoma in 2018 and is there to bring a smile to kids who are facing off against cancer.  Let’s bring some joy by filling the box with cell phone accessories, lotions, and make-up, games, hats, anything that a teen or pre-teen might like. This is our chance to show other teens in our community how much PC cares.
