The annual winter wish week is approaching fast. This year’s winter wish week will take place on January 27-February 1. Wish week is a whole week where the school focuses on donating money to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This year the kid we are raising money to support is named Taurean. Tauren is a 12 year old that is battling bone cancer. Taurens one true with is to be able to go to Greece.  


As a part of with week have have many different ways of raising money for Tauren. One of the ways we raise money is by having restaurant nights. The first restaurant night we have this year is Jimmy Johns. Jimmy Johns will take place on Monday -January 27, from 4:00-8:00 p.m. The Jimmy Johns is on Quincy and Buckley. 


The next restaurant we have as apart of this week is Chick-Fil-A. Chick-Fil-A will take place on 

Thursday, January 30, on Parker and Chambers. This restaurant doesn’t have a specific time frame and you can go all day.


The last restaurant for just this week itself is Smashburger. This will be on Saturday, February 1, on Parker and Havana. Just like Chick-Fil-A this will take place all day.
