On Tuesday, October 11, 2016 the students held a $2.00 Dress Down Day for the Italian Relief Fund to help the victims of the August earthquake. All of the proceeds are going to The National Italian-American Foundation. The students wore red, white, and green in honor of the Italian colors.

Special thanks to Miss Dovi for coordinating this event.
