Spring Fever has officially kicked in, and teachers at Twin Valley Middle School are celebrating it by getting pied in the face!

The TVMS Leo Club, a youth branch of the Lions Club, held a school-wide fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Over a mere 3 weeks, students raised an impressive amount of $8,075! As a fundraising incentive, more than 25 teachers volunteered to receive a pie in the face.

To celebrate the enormity of the funds raised, even Principal Dr. Jerry Catagnus got in on the action, reading the morning announcements in a hot dog suit and also receiving a pie to the face.

Special congratulations went out to Mrs. Tara Woomers advisory for raising the most within the school which earned them a pasta party from Olive Garden.

Seventh grader Gabe Thomas helped the advisory immensely by personally raising more than $1,000!

Twin Valley Middle School sure knows how to make helping others an enjoyable and memorable experience!
