The highlight of the week will be a benefit concert held on Tuesday, Oct. 11 at the school’s football stadium from 7 to 9:30 p.m.

The 2010 State Champion Viking band will also be participating in the concert.
Pink Vikings T-shirts can be purchased in advance for $15 and will include a ticket to get into the concert. T-shirts can be pre-ordered by emailing email@example.com or by purchasing them through the student council. T-shirts will also be sold at the concert for $10.
Tickets for the concert will be $10 at the gate. Children 5 and under will be admitted free of charge.
The proceeds from the event will benefit Stand Up To Cancer, a new initiative created to accelerate cancer research for new patient therapies.
