A kayak, a TV, a fridge, and more to be gifted at the After Prom Party A kayak, a TV, a fridge, and more to be gifted at the After Prom Party
A big, blue, brand new kayak is in Mrs. Osowski’s room along with a stack of outdoor games, all ready to go. In Mrs. Young’s room, we found a camping prize pack just right for the approaching summer. There’s also a mini-fridge and a flat screen television tucked away in a classroom where a fishing pole is peeking out of a small mountain of gifts for students. A glam prize pack, a barbecue prize pack, and others are on their way too, as well as tons of gift cards. All this and more will go home with lucky prom-goers who attend the After Prom Party, thanks in part to the generosity of the Otselic Valley Teachers Association Community Outreach Committee, other staff members, and our community. In teams and independently, staff have assembled wonderful giveaways that Vikings will receive this weekend. They join other members of the community and business donors who together are making this a wonderful return to Prom for our students.
