The school's Lost & Found bin is overflowing with clothing, lunch boxes, notebooks, textbooks and more. Items are currently out on tables in front of the language portable. On Friday, any remaining items will be packaged up and donated.
(Missing eye glasses? A phone? Invisalign? Check with Mr. Marsh in the office.)
The National Junior Honor Society and the Campus Ministry team are co-sponsoring a food drive for Sacred Heart Community Center, one of our service learning sites. Now through Friday the 13th, there are bins in the lobby of the church to bring any food items you wish to donate. The Center does request that only items that can be opened without a can opener (i.e. pop-tops) be donated. This is because many of the homeless that receive the food don't have a can-opener. Thanks very much.
