Canned Food Update- DUE FRIDAY BY 3RD HOUR

Hi All!

I just realized the canned food drive ends this Friday and not Tuesday.

So….. Here’s the deal…

For each item you bring (Ramon Noodles 2=1, 4=1) you will get 1 summative point.  You can bring in UP TO 15 items for 15 points.  Or, you can give $15 for $15 points.

Students who bring in 5 items will be given a FREE PASS.

The class that collects the most will receive an ADDITIONAL 10PTS.

These are all do FRIDAY BY THE BEGINNING OF 3RD HOUR, NO EXCEPTIONS!

Let’s feed the world!
