12/14/2020 A reminder Just a reminder that tomorrow is Christmas socks day
12/14/2020 Toy Drive Congratulations to the Grade 11's on their incredible holiday spirit, and their selfless and caring actions! The food drive was incredible Salukis! BUT the real question remains!
Are the grade 11's the clear champions of giving? Do they possess some special trait that makes them care more than others? OR are the other grades going to even the score? I know the grade 7's want some revenge for the last minute defeat. I also know that staff compassion reaches levels rarely heard of, it's practically legendary.
WHO will earn the coveted Toy Trophy, topped with the Golden Giver?
Tomorrow is our LAST day to donate. Thank you for thinking first and foremost of the Children!
