The age old battle between students and teachers will be played out on the basketball court of Bloomington Junior High next week.  It's all in fun, and in a good cause.

*Lynn Shook, BJHS Vice Principal, says the fundraiser is for Easter Seals.

*The boys and girls basketball team will compete against the staff and teachers, but they'll also get a lesson in giving back to the community.

*In order to be eligible to play, team members are asked to volunteer time at Easter Seal's  Timer Pointe camp.

*Students not on the team will be invited to get on the court at halftime and show off their dance moves.

*Tickets are actually a wristband and are available at BJHS.  The price three dollars, but for five dollars more, you can get VIP seating in the first row.
