We had a great response to our ‘Mickey Mouse ears’ Relay for Life fundraiser and students will receive their “ears” on Monday morning to celebrate Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday. Orders that were sent in after Thurs.  11/15 cannot be honored and your money will be returned to you. This year there is a link on our website, ps185.org to make donations directly to our Relay for Life team.  All funds are donated to the American Cancer Society.
