Canned Food Drive

Once again Geer Park is collecting canned/boxed food for the needy.  We are also collecting personal items such as shampoo, bars of soap, deodorant, lotion, diapers, wipes, toothpaste, toothbrushes.  There are boxes outside of the office to put these items in.  Our goal is to can the principal.  Every box we fill will be placed in Mrs. Srour’s office in an effort to get enough food/ items that she she can’t get into her office.

Students brought home the directions for a social studies project today.  The students need to create a brochure on Michigan.  The first sheet is the project sheet.
