Charity Week roars on with “Teacher Dance Battle”

Athens has transformed into a fundraising machine this week for Charity Week, which, this year, is dedicated to the Jenna Kast Believe in Miracles Foundation.  The super-high octane seven days wraps up Friday, Feb. 10 with the Pep Rally and BIG Reveal.

Last night, teams battled in a volleyball fundraiser.  Today, more money will be raised with “Jail &Bail,” “Parent Cook-off,” and the “Mr. Athens” competition tonight.

Students Jacob Kachert and Karim Soliman enjoy the performance of the History Dance Crew at the Dance Battle.

Tuesday afternoon of Charity Week was dedicated to the Teachers Dance-Off, pictured here. It was a competition which put academic departments against one another to see who had the best moves.

After each group, people had two minutes to walk up and down the aisles collecting donations for Charity Week. The amounts represented votes for the winner: more donations meant more votes.
