Premiere Parking in Trippeer:
Bid on one of the three premier parking spaces in the Trippeer lot, allowing your favorite student to avoid the hike from the Huffman Center. For sleepyheads, weather averse, or a student you want to spoil a bit, this is the ultimate privilege for the 2021-2022 school year.
Dining Hall Lunch Champion:
Be a lunchtime champion! If you love watching "Chopped" and have always wanted to plan a menu with a bit of flair, this package is for you! One student from 3rd-8th grade will work with the Flik Director of Food Services Bret Clark and Executive Chef Kenneth Pressey on planning lunch for three Fridays during the school year (fall, winter and spring).
