EHS Students & Staff are currently participating in two programs to help those in need in our community, they are:

1.  THE ANNUAL CANNED FOOD DRIVE:

This program begins Monday, December 2nd and runs through December 13th.  Students that particiapte will receive raffle tickets for every 3 cans of food they bring in each day.  Daily drawings for prizes will occur in addition to the grand prize of …a $100 VISA gift card.  Thanks in advance to all of the members of the EHS community that participate to make this a successful event.  The food is donated to those in need right here in the Elmira/Veneta/Noti/Walton area.

 

2. ADOPT-A-FAMILY:

Each school in the Fern Ridge School District has given EHS a family that could use some assistance this Holiday Season.  The Honor Society and Key Club are coordinating this event through 5th period classes.  Each class has been assigned a specific person (no names included), and the class gets that information.  Such as:  8 year old boy, likes to read, do puzzles and play his PS4.  The lists includes his needs and wishes.  If you woud like more information regarding this program, as you may hear your student talking about it, please feel free to contact Mr. Cooper or Mrs. Marquess here at EHS.

Thanks again to everyone that takes the time to particpate in these two programs.  The lessons learned here by our students are meaningful and important.  As someone who has delivered the presents to families in the adopt-a-family program, I can tell you they are all extremely grateful.  I wish everyone had a chance to see the joy and appreciation on their faces when they are delivered, as it is something you would not forget.  GO FALCONS!
