Hey Panthers! It’s Student Council. We are hosting our annual food drive again this year from the 29th of November to the 19th of December. Please check out the posters around school for highly needed items. The Food Pantry does not want travel-sized items therefore, they will not count towards the class competition. The competition will take place with your Day 2 Block 1 Class. The winning class will win breakfast pizza. The second-place class will get donuts and the third place will get candy. If you bring in three items to the December 4th wrestling meet and the December 7th basketball game, you will get in free. We will calculate items like we have in the past; average per person in the classroom.
The 2021 Academic Awards will be held virtually this year that will include a slideshow that will be sent out to students and families. Watch for more information on that date.
