It's the first week back from the holidays... exam week for the seniors... just a crazy week in general.  So, why have to worry about dinner?  STA will help you out on both Monday AND Wednesday this week.  On Monday, eat at Mi Patio in Ponchatoula beginning at 5pm until closing and on Wednesday, eat at Chick-Fil-A in Hammond from 5-8pm.  Just mention STA when placing your order and a percentage of your total will go to benefit STA.  What an easy way to support our great school!  Go Falcons!
