Gobbling for Good   

The annual turkey feather contest will not continue this year. However, a new donation competition will take its place, starting Nov. 11-15.

The new turkey collection will not be a competition between third period classes, but it will instead be between teachers.  This new fundraiser will pit teachers against teachers while including all students. For every $25 raised a teacher will receive a turkey on the front of their door.  The teacher with the most turkeys will win the Golden Gobbler Trophy and award their students with an ice cream party.

Though the game has taken on a new name, the goal is still the same.  All donations go to help custodians, cafeteria staff, ground keepers, and guard shack receive Thanksgiving turkeys and Christmas hams.  The money will also help student families in need throughout the year.

The Angel Tree is featured in the front office.

Angels in the Sky

The Bulverde Spring Branch Angels are sponsoring the Angel Tree project this holiday season.  The project strives to serve youth in the community by granting them with a Christmas wish.

To participate, come to the Angel Tree in the front office and choose an angel or two.  Then write your name and phone number on the bak of the tag and place it in the box next to the tree.  Return the wrapped gift or Christmas wish to the Angel Tree by Dec. 11.

Clothing drive informational posters are located in the hallways.

Donation boxes are in student services.

Do you have cans of green beans, whole kernel corn, cranberry sauce, boxed stuffing mix, or box mashed potatoes lounging in your pantry? If so — or if you’re willing to purchase these items from the grocery store — then donations are appreciated for the Guadalupe Valley Telephone Cooperative’s Thanksgiving food drive. 

Drop-off headquarters is located in Student Services, and goods will be accepted until Friday. See Tina Olcott in C115 for information.
