JMS Students Collect 500 Canned Goods

December 15, 2011

During the month of November, JMS students participated in a school-wide competition for bringing in canned foods. Students were asked to bring canned goods and non-perishable items to their first period class. The top two classes bringing in the most items won a FREE pizza party.

Congratulations to Mrs. Draper’s class for being the winner of the canned food drive! Her first hour class collected 215 canned goods!!!! They will be awarded with a pizza party through the Salvation Army at the beginning of the new year. Mrs. McCorkle’s class will also be awarded a pizza party for coming in second place with 95 canned goods. As a whole we raised a total of 500 canned goods!!

Thank you to the following classes that participated -McCorkle, Library, Nosa, Winters, Hortsman, Alexander, Harris, Hamilton, Draper, Joost, Huffman, Miller, Berendes, Blackburn, Hemstock, and Beebe. WAY TO GO!!!!

JMS is fighting hunger and giving back to the community!
