Give A Hoot Food Drive

Help Oakview Student Council lead the way in feeding the hungry in our community as we collect canned and boxed food items this week only. There are prizes for the class that collects the most items. If the school reaches its goal, Dr. Reavis, Mrs. Wheeler-Hawkins, and Mrs. Sexton will serve lunch to the school in the kitchen on March 17! Give-a-Hoot and join us for this year’s food drive!
