Updates From Mr. Bucher (Week of 11/26)
Toys for Tots
The Holicong Technology Education classes are working on their 9th annual Toys for Tots initiative. Throughout the school year, students in all grade levels will be participating in advertising, film production, toy building and new toy collection. Although the final collection day is December 7th, students will continue to build and assemble toy airplanes in all of their classes. Each airplane will consist of multiple manufactured parts using fixtures and precise tooling, and will be finished with a fine finish. The toys that our students build this year will be distributed next year during our 2013-2014 Toys for Tots campaign. In addition to building toy airplanes, we are also collecting new and unwrapped toys from our Holicong community. If you are interested in donating, the Toy collection boxes are located in Tech room 119. You can also drop off your donations in the main office.

On Wednesday, November 28th, Aramark began serving breakfast in the cafeteria before school. Students can now start their morning with a choice of: Sausage, Egg and Cheese, Bacon, Egg and Cheese, or Egg and Cheese on a Bagel or English Muffin. Breakfast sandwiches include tater tots, fresh fruit or fruit juice, and a choice of milk. The cost for these sandwiches is $1.95. Daily specials will also be available.
Those students choosing to eat breakfast at Holicong in the morning have been asked to report directly to the cafeteria when they arrive. In the future, we are planning to add a second location for students who would like to purchase breakfast before the beginning of the school day. Stay Tuned for the details on the opening of the second location!
