The CCISD mascot, the Bulldawg, not only builds camaraderie in the school district for our sports team, he also helped raise money for the United Way.
The faculty and staff of S.C. Lee Junior High participated in various fundraisers to raise money for United Way as part of CCISD’s combined campaign. Activities included jeans day, a Wednesday staff pool, and a super hero dress up day during Red Ribbon Week. Students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades became involved with a Kiss the Bulldog Contest by voting during their lunch periods for the teacher they wished to see kiss the bulldog at the end of the fundraising campaign.
S. C. Lee Coach Sekayi Herrera brought his one year old bulldog, Pape’ Chulo, to school and students were excited to see the bulldog receive a smooch on the lips from the teachers who got the most vote. Pape’ Chulo got to come on stage, meet the teacher, then get a great big smooch on the lips from three different teachers. The winning teachers were Pamela Knutson for sixth grade, Brye Fraysier for seventh grade and Coach Vincent Kasa for eighth grade. These teachers were all great sports and made the day a fun event for the students as well as the faculty and staff. Students like seventh graders Jacob Swope and Anthony Pearson roared at the site of teachers kissing the drooling dog.
