The student of the week didn’t require us to think! She’s a trendy little gal who never wears pink. She always does her best and does it with a smile and a wink! She brings it all and the kitchen sink! In her 8 keys armor there’s not one chink. From any task she does not shrink! We would like to recognize DAGNY PINK......US.

February 3rd-21st, students at Hastings Middle School fundraised for Pennies for Patients. This is a fundraiser through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, with all proceeds going to help kids with cancer. The Student Council and Mrs. Slechta came up with great ways each day for students to raise money. Click here to see the calendar detailing things they did each day. The event culminated on Friday, February 21st, with a school-wide assembly featuring an ice cream sundae-eating contest.
The initial goal was to raise $4,000 and they exceeded that goal with $5,190.17 raised! This excellent fundraising effort made them the TOP GROSSING SCHOOL in Nebraska!
