• *Husky Students…..MAKING a difference!!*

    OPPORTUNITIES

    Below is a list of opportunities that your child has to become involved and make a difference in the lives of others. THIS is NOT a requirement. Helping out others is just a great thing for our students to learn to do. You don’t even have to do them all, just find the one (or more) that speak to your passion.

    (PLEASE feel free to let us know of other opportunities that you are aware of to add to my list)

    Ø Rachel’s Challenge:  Join the KIND School Club that helps encourage a BULLY FREE school. BEING KIND TO OTHERS!! …what a great thing to do!

    Ø Ronald McDonald House: Mrs. LeMay will be collecting the metal can tops for the RMH. RMH collects these and turns them in to help raise money for the house and the patients. This will be an ongoing yearly project. Easy to do!

    Ø Aluminum Can Drive: The Robotics Team will run a fundraiser later in the year collecting aluminum cans. Start saving them now and crushing them! This is another big team completion. Also last year they gave out gift cards for winners of a drawing.

    Ø Boxtops for Education: The PTA collects these for money to help the school. Drop off the boxtops to your homeroom teacher. Prizes are usually awarded throughout the year.
