HIS School Supply Drive 2021 According to Junior Achievement USA, 60% of parents say it’s a challenge to afford necessary school supplies. Because of this we are hosting a week long school supply drive from May 17 - 21! You can drop off the gently used or new supplies to the Student Council Room any time during normal school hours. The donated supplies will go to students in need in the upcoming 21-22 school year! You will earn spirit points for your team and be entered into a drawing to win Jamba Juice gift cards! Use this Form for the drop off.
Go Local! It’s time to Go Local! Come join the Student Council on our journey to support local businesses to survive. Did you know that nearly 100,000 small businesses have recently shut down due to the pandemic? Because of COVID, they are getting fewer customers, which means they are losing money and sometimes shutting down for good. We encourage you to support any local business (restaurant, supermarket, etc.) and share a photo/video for 10 spirit point. Help local businesses stay in business! Upload your pic here.
