Week of November 23rd-24th
It was great seeing so many Central faces at Chipotle on Wednesday night! I hope everyone had a great dinner! :)
Please continue to check your child's planner every day. Your child is expected to write down the daily assignments. At the end of the day, I check each student's planner. If your child did not turn in an assignment that day, a note will have been written at the bottom.
Our Student Council is having a supply drive called "The Holiday Food and Household Supply Drive of Awesomeness." It will begin Tuesday, December 1st and run through Wednesday, December 16th. It will benefit the Valparaiso Schools Back Pack Project and Hilltop Food Pantry. The Valpo Back Pack Project is a mini food pantry housed in all the elementary schools so that the social worker can send home food and household supplies to families in need when necessary.
Items that we will collect are: toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies, toothpaste, detergent, body soap and shampoo. These are all items that food stamps cannot be used to purchase. Also canned and boxed food will be collected. Thank you for your support!
