Junior High District Tournament
The Leake Academy Junior High Girls and Boys teams are both ranked as the number one teams in the district tournament being held at Manchester Academy. The girls will play at 4 pm on Thursday, Jan. 29. The LA boys team will follow at 5:15. The winners of these games will advance to the district championship games at noon (girls) and 1:15 pm (boys) on Saturday.
The Jr. Beta Club is sponsoring a clothing drive for people in need. This is a wonderful opportunity to share with the less fortunate clothing items that have been gently used (no holes or stains) and outgrown. Boxes will be placed in prominent places on campus for donations. The drive will last for two weeks. All sizes are needed so clean out your closets! For more information see Coach Smith.

Box Tops for Education
Leake Academy has the opportunity to participate in Box Tops for Education. This is a fundraising program sponsored by General Mills, Inc. to help schools across the United States. Our school can earn cash through this program. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents to our school. Please clip the Box Top coupons located on most General Mills products, put them in a plastic bag or envelope and send them back to school with your child who can then place the bag in our drop box located outside the elementary computer lab. A list of products that have Box Top coupons can be found at www.boxtopsforeducation.com.
