Good Morning, Grizzlies:

Attention! NJHS is hosting a food drive for our Blue Springs Community Services League food pantry. The food drive is next week.

NJHS members will be coming around to collect food, starting on the 18th, and they will collect food every day, except for Wednesday.

The food has been split up by grade level.

6th grade food items are: Mashed potatoes and gravy mix.
7th grade food items are: Stuffing and canned vegetables.
8th grade food items are: Canned fruit and Jell-O.

The Advisory that brings in the most food items for their grade will get a pizza party. The second-place winner will get gym time.

The food drive is to help Blue Springs and Kansas City families during this holiday season.

**Please only bring the items ON YOUR LIST—We are collecting these items to fill holiday food baskets.

Congratulations Grizzlies! The Winter Guard list has been posted outside of the band room. Don’t forget to pick up your informational packet in the front office.

Hey Grizzlies—Do you want an opportunity to SHINE on GTV, while also doing something good for our school community? Enter our GTV raffle! You could WIN a spot in a GTV Challenge for $2, or 15 seconds of mic time with a Grizzly Shout Out for $1! Purchase raffle tickets from Mrs. O in room #504, or when GTV members visit your Advisory on Thursdays. This will be an ongoing opportunity each month. All money earned will help GTV with the PKMS Adopt-a-Family program.

Cooking Club will be selling pilgrim hat cookies next Friday morning in each of the grade level common areas where breakfast is served. They will be sold for two Grizzly bucks.
