The Food Drive is a yearly donation competition in which all grades compete to raise the weight of the food they have collected higher than that of any other grade. All the food donated will go to the Second Harvest Food Bank (link here), a program owned by Feeding America. Feeding America is a non-profit organization that focuses on feeding starving and underprivileged children through events like soup kitchens and food pantries. This year, 8th grade won the Food Drive, and will receive a popsicle party at the end of the year. To add to that, this year the school raised over 1,500 pounds of food! Congratulations and good job, everyone!
We are excited to announce we will be beginning the Box Tops program. Box Tops are small logos that can be found on the packaging of many common, everyday products such as Ziploc bags and cereal boxes. They are absolutely free to obtain and can be redeemed as a fundraiser for schools and charities.
Here’s how you can get involved! After collecting one or more Box Tops, your child should submit the Box Top(s) in his or her class. Please make sure that the expiration date is at least six months from the time of submission. A class sheet will be posted onto the wall, and the student should tape this or her Box Top(s) onto one of the empty spaces. He or she would then write his or her name and the number of Box Tops contributed on a separate sheet next to the Box Tops sheet. When an entire sheet is completely filled, the contributors will be given a lollipop as a reward. At the end of the year, the class that submits the most Box Tops will receive a movie party with treats, hosted by MASG.
Once again, thank you for all of your support, and we are very excited to be beginning the Box Tops program!
