“You’ve been flocked” fundraiser for the Renaissance program

High School - You've been flockedWEBThe Renaissance program at Solanco High School is running a unique fundraising activity that’s been underway for about two weeks. It’s called “You’ve been flocked,” and it was developed by high school students and Renaissance interns Audrey Crandall and Emily Mellinger. Here’s how it works: “Pink plastic flamingos are placed on an unsuspecting home’s front lawn with a sign saying ‘you’ve been flocked.’” Solanco High School teacher and Renaissance advisor Judy Richardson said a letter describing the activity is also delivered. “Homeowners then have a choice to pay $10 and have the birds removed within a few days, or pay $15 to have it removed and placed on another home’s lawn of their choosing.  If the homeowner does not want to participate in the program, they may contact the number listed on the letter and one of the interns will remove the flamingos at no charge.” The funds raised will support Renaissance, which is a national program designed to improve school climate, student attendance and student behavior. For more information, email Judy Richardson, or call Solanco High School Assistant Principal Scott Long at 786-2151, ext. 8152.
