HIGH SCHOOL NEWS
Last Man Standing
On Saturday, April 1, the high school ASB will be hosting Last Man Standing, the ultimate tag competition from 6:00-8:00pm on the high school campus. Participants dressed in dark clothing will register at the student center, where they will be given a bandana armband. After instructions regarding rules, safety and boundaries, the students will be sent outside where they will try to avoid ASB “Hunters” who will be armed with socks filled with flour. Any student who is tagged by a flour sock becomes a hunter. The final student who avoids being tagged will win a prize. In addition to the competition, there will be board games and snacks in the Student Center. The cost for the event is $5.
