Raking up a storm


The seniors completed their annual senior leaf raking on Friday November 8, 2019. Every year the whole senior class goes around the community and rakes senior citizens’ yards. This is an opportunity for students to give back to the city and make a difference.

For Nicholas Beiser leaf raking was easier due to the leaf blower. It allowed him to help the group move forward quicker.
