Honors Graphic Novel Class Fundraiser – October 21st, 2014

The Honors Graphic Novel class is holding a fundraiser on Tuesday, October 21, in the SBA Lounge. This will help them defray the cost of a trip they are taking to NYC. This trip will afford them the opportunity to visit MoCCA, Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art, and the 911 Museum. They recently read the graphic version of the 911 Report and will be able to experience history first hand by visiting the site.

Please stop by and have your comic portrait drawn and/or buy a baked good. Any encouragement you can give your students will be greatly appreciated.
