Attention all Circle Members: We are fast approaching the new school
year and that means new ideas and decisions are being made to help our high
school. We are again asking for ideas on the Circle Choice Fund. Remember this
fund is a percentage of the money that was raised throughout the year for SWCH.
This fund is ours to use how we would like, so bring on your best ideas. We
would like your ideas by September 1 so that the Executive Committee can do the
proper research on cost. We will vote on final ideas at the All Circles Meeting
in September. Ask your student if he/she has any ideas and email your thoughts
to Kristi Stroeh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline is September 1.
