Can Food Drive: Key Club is sponsoring a Can food drive for our local food pantry at Redeemer Methodist Church.  Students and Staff are encouraged to bring in non perishable food items and monetary donations to help the food bank.  Items will be collected by Key Club members in the commons before school and during both lunches this week through Tuesday, November 22.  Students and Staff will be asked to identify their Seminar when turning in food items because the Seminar with the most food items donated at the end of the drive will receive a Pizza Party sponsored by Key Club! Additionally monetary donations will be collected in jars with teachers’ names on them.  The top 5 teachers with the most monetary donations to their jars will be receiving a pie in the face at lunch.  So bring in your donations to help our local food bank for the year!
