Here are some key dates for May (Relay for Life)

*Relay donations will occur from Monday, May 15th through Friday May 26th.
*There will be 2 Flip Flop donation days ($1 donation for Relay for Life):  Tuesday, May 16th and Tuesday May 23rd.
*Friday May 19th:  Mini Relay at the track (schedule T.B.D.)  Freeze pops and water will be sold for .50  proceeds to Relay total
*Friday May 26th:  Relay Volleyball game (Time T.B.D).  The grade donating the most money toward Harding's Relay total, will play a volleyball game against their teachers.  Top 10 students donating are the team, the rest of the grade are spectators.
SADD Club will provide team shirts.
News 9/newspaper will be notified so they can do a positive piece on the students.
Last year we raised $2,598...a huge improvement from 2015 ($329).  This year our goal is $5,000.  Creek took all 3 places for totals last year. We are hoping to get Harding in there this year. On Friday, May 12th, SADD officers and class reps will be going to classrooms to promote our Relay event (I chose Friday so it's the last day of testing).  Target is putting together a couple of t-shirt options for the HMS relay to sell and wear the day of our relay at the track.  Some of the proceeds will be able to go towards Relay totals.  We are doing prizes/gift cards just like last year.  A letter will go home that Friday explaining the details of the HMS Relay for Life event.  Below, I have listed the class reps. and officers that will be responsible for helping with Relay.  Any questions, suggestions, etc., feel free to see me!  Happy May

Officers from Harding Middle School SADD Club visited patients at Trinity East Hospital on Christmas Eve.  They painted nails, sang Christmas carols, passed out cards, baked goods, and listened to the patients share stories.  The students had such a wonderful time visiting, they asked to make it a monthly event.  Students attending:  Kiera O'Brien, Mary Marshall, Emily Allen, Delaney Connor, and JD Ellis.
