Those toys will help give underprivileged children a happy Christmas. We are competing against Dublin Coffman High School to see which school can collect the most toys! Please help kids in need and bring your new toy donations to the Guidance Office!
Senior Photo Check: The Yearbook staff made a list of the seniors who did not turn in a picture for the yearbook and posted it in two places–outside the main office and outside Room 240. If your name is on the list that means that Yearbook did NOT receive your senior picture and you should talk to the yearbook staff in room 240.
Freshman Candle Orders: Freshmen, please pick up your candle orders! If you still need to pick up your candles you can do so after school, today through Thursday in room 175.

Gifts for Children’s Hospital Teens: McKenna Cowman and Kaitlin O’Connor need your help for their Capstone project—collecting gift donations for teens in Children’s Hospital. Some gift ideas are books, magazines, earbuds, iTunes gift cards, and small blankets. Please drop off gifts in the main office. Or, if you don’t know what to give, visit their go-fund-me page where you can make a cash donation, www.gofundme.com/teens-too or go to the link on one of the girls’ Twitter accounts.

On Thanksgiving Day we take time to reflect on the many blessings in our lives. We spend time with family and friends; we enjoy annual traditions and celebrate the start of the holiday season.
It’s easy on Thanksgiving Day, during the holiday weekend, to keep what’s most important on our minds and in our hearts. What’s difficult is to keep what’s most important in the forefront when we return to the daily grind of life and school.
On this day of giving thanks, don’t only utter words of thanks, but make the commitment to live your life in a spirit of thanksgiving. We must keep what’s most important on our minds and in our hearts every day of the year.
Students from all three of our high schools participated in the International Thespian Society’s Trick or Treat so Kids Can Eat program. On Halloween, the students went trick-or-treating in their neighborhoods, but instead of asking for candy, they asked for non-perishable food goods. We are proud to announce the students were able to donate over 2900 pounds of nonperishable foods to the Hilliard food pantry.
