1. Thursday, January 18th Dress Down Fundraiser

We will be having a special dress down day on Thursday, January 18th. The minimum donation will be $1.00.

All of the money is going directly to a Merritt family that had a house fire Saturday morning and lost everything. Many of you heard about the fire on the news in Berville. The two boys attend Merritt. The family is fine physically but emotionally and financially devastated. She is a single parent and at this time the greatest need is money to find a new place to live.

2. NHS Food Drive

The National Honor Society will be hosting a Food Drive for families in need. Acceptable donations include: canned/non-perishable food items, toiletries, as well as paper products (paper plates, silverware, cups, paper towels, toilet paper, etc). Preschool to 5th grade will give their donations to their teacher. Middle and High School students will turn in their donations to their first hour teacher, and NHS will count and collect the boxes daily. The classes that donate the most items will receive a reward. Donations will be accepted starting Monday, January 22nd, through Friday February 2nd.
