Let’s Make A Change
Plankinton School seventh grade student, Austin Hauge, has had a challenging start to his school year.  What started out as a common illness has led to some major medical issues.  Austin has been taking this all in stride with a smile, but right now, they could use a “Change”!  To help the family defer some of the expenses incurred during this process, Plankinton School District is collecting “Change”!  Your pennies, dimes, nickels, quarters and even your spare bills will be collected from November 27th thru December 1st.  There will be jars in the elementary wing, at the front office, in the Library and they will be out at the Christmas Concerts that week!  (If you wish to send a check, please make it out to Marsha and Rocky Hauge.)  Let’s Make A Change in someone’s life and support this family as they work on finding some answers!  A jar will also be at the F&M Bank and Ron's Market for community members to participate! 

Austin Hauge is an amazing young man, with a huge heart, and is member of the Titan Wrestling Family. Pins for Austin is fundraiser designed to help the family of Austin Hauge with medical, travel and any other expenses acquired while receiving care. Austin has several medical issues and most recently a blood clot in his lung. The Titan Wrestling team is asking to help this great family out by pledging money for every pin the team gets this season. You can donate any amount of money per pin that you would like. Our goal as a team is to reach 100 pins this season. We will keep track of the pins and post them in the Plankinton and Mt. Vernon School announcements, so everyone will know how many pins we are at. Thank you from the Titan Wrestling Family.
