TURKEY TUESDAY!

Pajama & Donation Day Mission Details

The "Turkey Tuesday" Mission had 2 parts

Part 1: Pajama Day!

Students were asked to wear Pajamas for a (suggested) $2 donation, or donation of choice.  These donations will be used to purchase frozen turkeys to help the Human Needs Food Pantry provide turkeys to those who are depending on them this Thanksgiving.   


Part 2: Classroom Non- Perishable Donation Contest!

Students were asked to work together with their teacher & class to collect as many non-perishable (non-expired!) donations possible, using a list provided. Each item collected counted for a point.  The classes with the most points won!  The winning classes will vote on a separate special theme day (crazy hair day, pajama day, etc.) to celebrate their efforts to help others!
