General:

LINK Christmas Party is on Friday, Dec. 16, during lunch in the student center. ONLY LINK members that pay the $5.00 will be allowed in the student center for the Christmas Party. You voted that the $5.00 will pay for pizza, drinks, candy, and serving supplies. We have never had anyone leave one of our Christmas parties hungry. I need your money before Wed. Dec. 14, so I can make sure we have enough food. If you need to study for your math test during our party, just bring your materials.

Student Council and LINK will be collecting can foods for the Food Bank beginning in December. If each child brought five cans of food, then we could have over 2000 cans of food. Please work together and try to help our community and school students. The most giving people are those that understand what it means to do without or remember how blessed they have been.
