The Falls is competing against Sussex and Germantown to get the biggest percentage of our student population to pledge. When you pledge, you’ll get a sticker to put in your car window. If your car gets spotted with the sticker and are one of a few to be selected by police, you can get a free parking pass or reimbursement on one you already purchased. Also, all students who pledge will be entered in a raffle for a $10 gift certificate to the school store. Visit the DON’T TEXT AND DRIVE table at lunches to pledge today!
