"This group is just beginning, so they are trying to raise money to use for next year in order to compete in FBLA events," said Maria Jeffrey, teacher/advisor for the FBLA at the middle school. "The students have worked diligently placing fliers around the town and school, and pricing items that have been donated by staff members as well as people in the community."
That same day, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. students will participate in a beautification project that coincides with Earth Day. Everyone is welcome, just bring gloves, a rake and shovel.
The Beautification Day is a project of the Site-Based Team, a shared-leadership group consisting of administrators, teachers and parents.
"We will replant sections of the school lawn, plant trees, and learn more about sustainable farming and waste water management," said Frank Yanoti, 7th grade assistant principal of the school. "There will also be some activities for younger children."
Anyone interested in participating in the community tag sale can rent a table for $25 and keep your profits or donate items to the Future Business Leaders of America table. There will also be baked goods for sale.
Also in attendance will be the Shrub Oak-based , which plans on giving a percentage of their profits to the middle school group.
