Student representatives report

Student representatives to the board reported that the DuBois Area High School annual “Ugly Sweater” dance will be held Dec. 14 and will be hosted by the Mock Trial team. The dance will help raise money for the team’s first tournament of the season, which will be the first weekend in January at the University of Pittsburgh.

The ninth annual Pink Game, with the girls basketball teams from DuBois and Brockway competing, will be at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 21 at the Brockway Area High School to raise money for the Hahne Cancer Center.

DAHS teachers will participate in a Jeans Week in January. Brockway is now taking orders for pre-game shirts at $5 per shirt. Those interested can contact Michelle Snyder for more information.

Over the past eight years, the two schools have raised approximately $124,000 for the cancer center.

Sue Olsakovsky and Therese Inzana of Brockway are coordinating the game.
