Students raised money through Paws for a Cause, a visit from Dr. Paws therapy dogs, Senior Auction, and a Dodgeball Tournament. In addition, students paid $1 a minute to keep principal Dr. James Anderson in “jail” without his phone all day on March 9.

The final event for Charity Week will feature Angela Leach, Harrison’s assistant principal, as she becomes a human ice cream sundae during all lunches on March 19.
