Stuck for a Buck! Students taped Mrs. Gomez to the wall which is a good cause in and of itself. But an even better reason was to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society! Click Here to see the video!

And Friends of Moffet has a successful inaugural project to help pave the way for the next one.
Hearty THANKS to:
