Ms Smith FACS class at Orion Jr have been making seatbelt covers for cancer patients…The idea was inspired by one of Ms. Smith students who has a friend with cancer. The cancer patients favorite item that helped her through her treatments was a selt beltcover for the Chemo ports. The covers prevent the seatbelts from rubbing against the ports. The ports are very sensitive. All covers made will be donated to local hospitals for cancer patients.
Heather Smith Orion FACS teacher shows off the projects that she has been working on with her FACS students. She and her students made these for patients at Primary Children's Hospital. They also made some awesome Chromebook cases for Orion Jr. High. These projects benefited others.
For the month of December the CTE office worked with the Roy High Clubs and classes to collect socks for the Lantern House in Ogden. Socks are the #1 most requested clothing item at homeless shelters. No one should go without warm, dry socks. Everyone deserves Warm Feet!

Bonneville/HOSA Elementary Food Packs. Bonneville started this project last year, and have continued it again this year. We deliver food packs on a monthly basis. This month we assembled over 100 food packs that were donated to our 6 Elementary schools before the Thanksgiving break. We have collected enough food to do another 100 (give or take) food packs for Christmas!!
Our Thanksgiving Food Drive at Smith's, Fresh Market, and Macey's. HOSA, LIA, MESA, DECA, NHS, FFA, and student body came together to collect donations. Students then sorted, organized, and divided out the food. We had plans to feed between 20-25 families for Thanksgiving, and in the end we fed about 30 families from 6-7 of the schools in our cone.
