Scholar Council 

Cans 4 Duds & Dollars 4 Duds Nov. 16th – This Thursday we are having a dollars for duds where scholars may bring either money or cans of food, which will allow them to wear their own clothes to school.  It is 4 cans of food if scholars wish to wear a complete outfit that is not the school uniform.  Cash that is collected will be used to purchase turkeys and hams.  This year, the food will go directly to families here in Queen Creek.  Preferred items include:  Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday food like stuffing, cranberry sauce, corn, canned gravy, and even bags of potatoes.  Also, kid friendly foods like canned ravioli, boxed macaroni & cheese, refried beans, etc. are appreciated.
