The students will unload, then box the food and then deliver the boxes to people’s carsAll dates are Tuesday’s from 12:20 – 2:30 and volunteers will be marked school related. Students who don’t have a 5th and 6th hour, think about this unique 2 hour opportunity to help our community!  Everyone is welcome to volunteer.

Reminder for ALL Students: 

Part of our school wide PBIS behavior philosophy is that school events are designed for students that are in good standing both academically and behaviourally. These events include but are not limited to all dances including PROM, field trips, athletic events, celebration of achievements,  etc. Any student that has been Out of School Suspended is not allowed to attend these events. Additionally, if a student is OSS they are not allowed on school grounds or at any before or after school sponsored events while on suspension; this includes away sporting events.
