Agassiz Elementary Secondary collects $408 and non-perishables for food bank

The school collected the donations by doing two basketball ‘buyouts’

The Agassiz Elementary Secondary School has collected food donations and $408 for the local food bank by doing two basketball “buyouts” over the fall and early winter semester.

A basketball buyout is when students bring enough canned goods or cash to homeroom for the whole class to be excused and watch a basketball game at the school.

The buyouts were done for the senior girls’ tournament on Nov. 29 and 30 as well as the senior boys’ tournament on Dec. 6 and 7.
