GRAFTON—The Taylor County Middle School 2017 Spring Formal Court is helping the community and students at the school.
Staff members selected the 2017 Spring Formal Princess Court based on observation of character, grades and school involvement.
According to Chairperson, Elaine Gilbert, herself along with Chairperson Sarah DePiano, decided to add something new to the formal this year. This year the princesses are required to complete a community service project and fundraiser.
“We wanted to teach the kids the importance of giving back to others,” said Gilbert.
Gilbert shared, the funds collected from the fundraiser will be used to help less fortunate students at the school, during Christmas time.
“Last Christmas we were short on funds, and wanted to do a fundraiser to help the students,” explained Gilbert.
The princesses elected an escort to help them with their community service and fundraising, for a combine effort.
The students have also set up cans at school to collect donations. Donations can be from family, friends, or businesses.
The Spring Formal Dance will be held at the school on Thursday, March 30. The King and Queen will be crowned at the dance.
The Taylor County Middle School and the Spring Formal Court would like to thank the community in advance for their support.
The court will be accepting donations until Tuesday, March 28 at 10:00 a.m.
