Kiwanis Christmas Food Basket Drive

Our support of Bentonville's Kiwanis Christmas Food Basket program has begun! Donations of non-perishable food items will go toward feeding hungry families on Christmas Day. Donations may either go to Ms. Pollreis's room (214) or dropped in boxes that will be stationed at the front of our building (near the office). Also, we'll be collecting items at our home opener basketball game this Thursday, 11/15. We have entered into a friendly contest with our cross-town rival, Fulbright, regarding which school can donate the most items that night. So help us in this worthy effort: donate here at school through 12/18 and/or start us off with a "Beat Fulbright in Kiwanis Food Drive AND basketball" night this upcoming Thursday (11/15).
