TALENT – Talent Middle School's Sources of Strength peer leaders have organized a pie-in-the-face contest set for next week to raise money for a yet-to-be-named charity.

Beginning Monday, March 11 and wrapping up Thursday, March 14, 15 TMS staffers will collect spare change and Bulldog bucks from students, staff and community members. The three staff members who collect the most donations will take a pie to the face during a special Sources of Strength assembly on Monday, March 18. 

The school's community leadership class will determine which charity will benefit from the fundraiser, and the Sources of Strength peer leaders will reveal the charity during the assembly. 

Community members are welcome to come to the TMS front office to donate to the participating staff member of their choice.
