It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! As the weather forecast calls for dropping temperatures, the St. Joseph's Rams are heating up! Initiatives full of selflessness and joy have begun, and the Social Justice Club needs your help!
The food drive in support of local families and the Caring Cupboard will be running until December 13. Please check your homerooms for sign up sheets for the most sought-after contributions to the drive! Each list represents one family in need. One more family will be full this Christmas thanks to the generosity of you and your classmates.
This Friday, December 8, is "Dress-up Day" in support of the food drive. All of the proceeds collected that day ($2 from each student out of uniform as well as any donations) will be put towards buying food to donate to local families, especially those in need within our ramily. Bring out your best semi-formal wear and support your friends and fellow students!
Throughout the performances of the school's "High School Musical" production, boxes will be present for donations at the door. Be a fan of both your community and the extremely talented art, drama, and music students, and bring a can! Cash donations will also be accepted!
