All students interested in participating in these programs are required to have a physical, copy of their insurance card, permission slip, and emergency contact form completed in order to participate.

Once the student is chosen for the team, there is a $75 participation fee. Forms are available online and in the front office. If you have any questions, please contact Laura Ridge, Athletic Director, at 480-882-3519.


Pennies for Patients

Since 1994, millions of dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare change by more than 10 million elementary, middle, and high school students throughout the country. The Pennies for Patients campaign began in the Society's North Carolina Chapter in 1995. The funds collected benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Everyone who participates is a winner! Students across the country collect pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters during the Pennies for Patients campaigns benefiting the Society. We award prizes such as computers, electronics, and sports equipment to the top schools.

Combs Middle School will participate in this event, sponsored by student council, during the month of March. Please encourage your child to participate in this school community service project!
