Soldotna High School teachers and students contributed money to support The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). Two teachers a week competed to see who could get the most contributions in their jar. The loser got to smash a pie into the winner's face. There were four weeks of competitions ending with a student competition. The fundraiser was managed by the SOHI Student Council.

Rather than work toward a contract, KPBSD leadership made it clear that they are willing to spend money to fund consultants and administrative programs rather than paying for their current employees.
