JROTC FOOD DRIVE - PHASE TWO ENDS ON 12/14/15

We have finished Phase I of the food drive supporting the local food pantry at the New Market United Methodist Church. The Phase I total was an amazing 4080 food items collected! The church picked up the food on Friday November 20th.


Current classroom totals are as follows: In first place is Ms. Squire’s A Day, 2nd Block Class with 356 food items donated. In second place is Ms. Tran’s B-Day 1st Block Class with 353 food items donated. In third place is Ms. Squire’s B-Day 3rd Block Class with 330 food items donated. Phase II (Christmas) begins today and ends on Monday, December 14th.


Remember, if a 1st block class wins, that class gets a free breakfast from Dr. Chumbley’s Culinary Class – paid for by JROTC. If a 2nd, 3rd or 4th block class wins JROTC will buy pizza and soft drinks for that class. We will declare the winning class on Tuesday, December 15th. The breakfast/pizza can be awarded that day or Wednesday, the 16th of December.


This food drive provides food for local families. Please help. We really need your support!
