Holiday giving opportunities
This is the time of year when people think not just of their families, but of those less fortunate in our community. We are currently collecting canned goods through Dec 2. We are having a grade level competition to determine which grade can collect the most cans.
Student Council, YOU and FCA are collecting travel sized items for the homeless in our area. The kits will be distributed in gallon size zipper closure bags. They are looking for:
- Hand/Body lotion
- Razor/Shaving Creme
- Zip-lock Gallon Bags.
We are also still collecting Box Tops for Education. All of the above items can be turned in to your student's sixth period teacher. Thank you for our help.
