April 15-18 Updates

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Bexley Carnival- May 18

Bexley High School’s Key Club is conducting their second annual Bexley Carnival. The Carnival is a community event with booths displaying the work Bexley’s high schoolers have done. In addition, they will have food and games.

 This is all in an effort to raise money for the Buckeye Clinic in South Sudan. The Buckeye Clinic has the mission to improve the health of persons living in Piol, Twic East County, South Sudan, and surrounding villages with a primary focus on maternal and child health.

 The Carnival is scheduled for Saturday, May 18 from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Bexley High School.
