Some families have a hard time making ends meet.  Others do not have enough money to feed their family.

Students and staff are encouraged to donate food for our annual Food drive during Red Ribbon Week, October 21-25.  Food items should be dropped off in your team center.   The grade level with the most items will earn music during their lunch. The collection begins on Monday, so offer to help with the grocery shopping this weekend and pick up some items for those in need.
