United Week is fast approaching for Guthrie High School. From Friday, March 2nd to Friday, March 9th, the entire school will be uniting together to raise money for the Youth Shelter here in Guthrie. Their goal is $5,000.
“We feel that the Youth Shelter is a great representation of our community and we ask that you would join in with us during our fundraising activities. With your cooperation we know that United Week will be a great success,” STUCO sponsor Candy Griffin said.
Below is an itinerary that is subject to slight changes if necessary.
On March 1st at 8:40 a.m. we will kick off United Week with the Annual Battle of the Sexes Assembly. On March 9th at 8:40 a.m. United Week will end with a closing assembly.
