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!
Come have a blast with your friends, or go solo. Score the most goals, or block the most shots. You can choose, at our soccer tournament on Friday, April 13th. The sign-up will be in the front office at the start of April. Be there!
Our end of the year dance will be on Wednesday, May 30th, from 3:00 to 6:00. This year, Elementary will be able to attend from 3:00 to 5:00, while Middle School can come from 4:00 to 6:00. This is to balance the requests to let elementary go with middle school, and the requests to separate them. The theme this year will be Hawaiian. Expect a luau, the beach, and the gentle ocean breeze along with heavy-bass remixes of popular songs (just kidding). Can’t wait to see you guys there!
There is a MASG sale on Monday, February 12th! You can get ice cream, soda, cookies and cupcakes for $1 each, floats and large cupcakes for $2 each, and ice cream sandwiches for $3 each! So don’t forget to bring your cash, and have a great time!
This is the Monticello Academy Student Government news for December. The next video will drop at the beginning of January, see you!
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!
