The Octagon Club just completed a Canned Food Drive to help reinvigorate the school's existing food pantry. The Food Pantry is used to assist students and their families that are food insecure. Students and families work in conjunction with Ms. Tari Connell, our Social Worker. This year, the winning class of the food drive was Mrs. Ware's 1st period. They will receive a donut breakfast courtesy of the Octagon Club. Special thanks to freshmen Josephine Pollack, who brought in 475 items all by herself.
New this year, we were able to take cash and gift card donations to help sustain the pantry. As the shelves become bare, the Octagon Club will use these funds to purchase more needed items. Anyone may donate food, monies, or gift cards at any time during the school year. Contact the school for more details.
