What is Hat Day?


-      Hat Day is a monthly event where everyone can participate! 

-     Students can wear any school appropriate hat - show off your personality!

-      All of the money earned goes to Student Leadership funds in order to continue to improve the building and fund new and fun events!

-    There are always posters hanging in your hallways telling you when the next hat day is!

How to participate in hat day!

-  On hat days students from the leadership class will come around to HAWK Hours to collect $1 and stamp students hands
