Valentine’s Day Brings New Fundraiser For Class of 2026


GROTON. Conn – The Sophomore class initiated a new fundraiser that brought Valentine’s  Day spirit to FHS

Led by the student council of the class of 2026, surveys were administered to the whole school during CTLs. Whether students took the survey or not was up to them, however, it was free to fill out. The results were processed by a company called Matchomatics. Then during all lunch waves, students could purchase their results for two dollar  

On Thursday, Feb 8, members of the student council went around to all CTLs. During these visits, groups of students presented the QR code holding the link to the survey. They talked about what the survey entails and how the fundraiser works. 

“It was a fun way to raise money,” said sophomore Kayleigh Werner. 

Results from the surveys came in on Feb 14, yet the results were postponed from being sold until Feb 15 and 16. 

Response to the results ranged from excited to disappointed. 

“I was surprised, some of them were kind of unexpected,” said sophomore Eesha Patel. “But I reminded myself it was just for fun!” 

The results gave each person 22 people as their matches within their grade, 22 people as friend matches within their grade, along with 10 matches for each category but within different grades. 

In addition, if a student added their birthday, they were given a list of  people in the school and celebrities with the same birthday, as well as various other statistics based on their date of birth

Coming up in March, the class is selling baked goods at the Mystic Saint Patrick’s Day Parade.
