The High School Student Council presents "Grub Day." 
Basically, “Grub Day,” is a fundraiser in disguise (for missions/charities) where students and teachers pay in order to wear certain things outside of the dress code.  The CAWNY Middle School students developed the concept many years ago to promote awareness and involvement in missionary giving.  The office will have a table set up in the foyer from 8 to 8:30am each Grub Day morning.  This is where you pay for your all day pass. (BOCES students or anyone arriving late can go the office to pay.)
Grub Days are open to ALL GRADES.
Cost is $5.00; Family Discount is $12.00 for families with 3 or more students.
Of course, donations will also be accepted.
Remember, NO...
- objectionable logos or images on clothing
- skulls, cross bones, inappropriate writing
- crop tops
- ripped or excessively tight jeans
- open toe shoes
- pajamas (sweat pants are allowed)
As always, modesty rules apply!

("Hosting is life changing 12 week summer and/or 4 week winter event where you welcome an orphaned child into your family’s home. Host children range in age from 6-16 and each host family is allowed to choose the child that fits best with their family dynamic after viewing the children’s photos and reading their biographies online. Without hosting, most of these children will eventually ‘age out’ of the system and never experience the life-giving, life-changing love that family provides. Hosting can also serve as a connection between an orphan and his or her ‘forever family’. ")
