It is that time of the year when we all come together and do our best to collect 30,000 cans for 'Circle of Concern'. We make a big difference in the life of every family that is supported by our collection. As we begin our Canned Food drive we need help from all of you.
We need volunteers to help collect canned food at Shop n Save on weekends of November 4/5 and November 18/19. We are including a link in this email for a sign-up genius. This is for students and adults to volunteer at our Shop n Save collection site on the two weekends. This is time sensitive because we have many volunteer spots remaining to be filled for this weekend coming up in 48 hours.
Thank you, parents and students, for volunteering to collect canned food.

ROTC: Christian Lewis
It is our pleasure to submit this recommendation for Department Student of the Quarter on behalf of Christian Lewis. We would like to assure you that a quality, take charge, self-motivated individual is being nominated. Christian has become the type of person we rely on to volunteer for school or community service. Giving back is a big part of the “service before self” core value of Junior ROTC. A shining example was the homecoming parade. While everyone else enjoyed tailgating, the game and numerous other festivities, Christian volunteered to help Sue Jessen and her crew pick up trash until 9:00 p.m. Incredible selflessness! In our numerous other events, Christian is a constant presence and always anxious to do more in making these initiatives successful. It’s a great example for his fellow cadet students. This type of leadership impression normally takes much longer to develop. Christian was chosen not only for the aforementioned reasons, but also for his many other outstanding characteristics. His subtle sense of humor, respect for authority, enthusiasm, politeness, self-discipline, humility, drive and energy only scratch the surface of his impressive traits.
