Student Council Winter Charity Drive
Donate items to “Life moves - Breaking the Cycle of Homelessness.” Third grade classes are asked to donate paper towels and napkins.
Also, you can donate money (spare change welcome) to support teachers and students who were victims of the recent fires in Butte County. Money will be used to buy supplies and other classroom and student needs.
Second Harvest Food Bank
Fill a bag with non-perishable items and drop them off in cans at the main gate of the school. Students brought home a bag last Friday. Let’s try to fill the bins!!
