Student Council Project



WE LOVE OUR PETS


This is the last week we will be collecting dog or cat food for the Meals on Wheels Pet Food Program.  Each month Meals on Wheels provides more than 2,100 pounds of pet food to homebound pets.  You can drop off your donations in the food collection boxes in the main hallway.

 After March 6th, we will return to collecting non-perishable food for  local food banks.

Due to the inclement weather, we are readjusting the Student Course Registration for related arts courses for our 5th grade students.  Registration will now take place the week of March 9-13.
