Woodbury's National Junior Honor Society is conducting a fundraiser for the Salvation Army. All 6th period classes are competing to see who can raise the most money in one week! The class that donates the most between December 10 and 14 will win a "Free Period" on Tuesday December 18th in the cafeteria with food, games, and fun!
Come during lunch to learn about and practice the art of storytelling! Bring your lunch down from the cafeteria and eat in the library. Afterwards, the fun begins! The sessions build on each other, so you will want to attend all sessions. After doing warm-ups, tellers will get ready for the Bristlecone Storytelling Festival. After the school-wide event, we will send school champions to the regional event. The Public Library heaters host these region festivals.
