Community Volunteer Opportunities

Food Drive Competition – The NHS and Service Club are hosting a school Food Drive competition on Nov. 1st-4th.  Donations will be collected in your scholar’s citizenship classes.  The class that has the most donations at the end of the week will get a free Dollars for Duds wristband to use on Nov. 10th (all 8 day).  They will be the only students on campus that will be allowed to wear their non-uniform clothes on the 10th!  If you would like to make a cash donation instead of food- please use the following link: https://give.unitedfoodbank.org/team/388570.  In the comments, please mention your child’s citizenship teacher to participate in the competition.
