    panera1

    Help West High collect money to purchase food for the Food Drive.  Set aside Wednesday, October 15, to bring your hungry family to the Panera near Northpark.  If you’re not hungry then, pick up a couple dozen bagels to freeze for later.  Our goal is to have 50 people eat at Panera’s or buy takeout between 4:00 and 8:00 Wednesday, October 15.  You’ll need to give Panera the coupon they’ve given us.  Get your coupon from a Senator or the front desk in the Main Office.  As always, we appreciate your help.

Maybe they’ll take requests as this tradition continues.
