Name That Teacher

Name That Teacher

As kids get ready to head back to school we want them to go back in style. We've got a new contest called Name That Teacher.

Each day we will have a mystery teacher from a different school in the area. Througout the day we will release clues to that persons identity. The first person to call in and guess correctly will win a $20 gift card from Keystone Sports Excellence. They will then qualify for the grand prize, a 16GB ipad mini with cellular ($550) from Mega Computers!!! The grand prize will be given away Monday Sept 8th.

Clue release time:

7:10 AM

8:50 AM

10:30 AM

12:15 PM


Our first mystery teacher is Mme Bruce from Ecole Crescentview School!
