“Student Leadership's food drive to assist St. Mary’s Dining Room this holiday season was a huge success. St. Mary’s cooks 3 meals a day, 365 days a year. The canned vegetables and spices will come will no doubt warm the hearts as well as the bellies at St. Mary's Dining Room. The Leadership Class appreciates your generosity.
Box Tops For Education Campaign
The Leadership Class under the direction of Ms. Yeager are leading the charge to collect "Box Tops for Education." In last year's 4th quarter campaign, students and staff collected 3,446 valid box tops. This means we earned $344.60. This year the Christa McAuliffe Family can donate their Box Tops all year long. There is a collection box in the office window. Let's see what we can do in a year. Thanks in advance for all of your donations.
Our third quarter fundraiser started Monday, (Jan. 26) and will end Tuesday, (Feb. 17). We are doing Pennies for Patients again this year. We raised $1,137.77 last year, how about we see if we can beat it this year???
"Since 1994, millions of dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare change by more than 10 million elementary, middle and high school students throughout the country. The funds, collected during a three-week period, benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Everyone who participates is a winner!
Students across the country are collecting pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters during the Pennies for Patients campaigns benefiting the Society.
In the Pennies for Patients campaign, the class collecting the most change in each school receives a pizza party. Prizes such as computers, electronics and sports equipment are presented to the top schools in each area. The Pennies for Patients campaign began in the Society's North Carolina Chapter in 1995."
This contest will be held in your THIRD period classes and the class that collects the most will win a Pizza Party. There are also Classroom Pennants that can/will be awarded. Classes that raise $100-$199 will earn a Bronze Pennant, $200-$299 will earn a Silver Pennant and classes that earn $300.00 or more will receive a Gold Pennant.
