For a FCCLA community service project this month blankets were tied and donated to Youth Futures, which is a teen homeless shelter here in Ogden. The students were able to deliver them and the were able to hear more about how the shelter is helping teens in our community.
Fremont High School- ProStart,Culinary Arts and FCCLA members have been busy creating gingerbread houses. They made the dough, cut out the pieces and baked them. They got to work uniquely decorating their houses. The top two houses, after a class vote will go on to be auctioned off at the WSD Christmas Tree Jubilee.
MIRACLE MINUTE-Is Raising money for the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. Sally Palmer drew pictures, and published them into a book. She has sold them to students, faculty, community members, etc. During the Miracle Minute we raised $438.27 out of our $500 goal!! She has put in many hours, and a lot of hard work to help our HOSA National Service Project!! Way to go Sally!!!
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.
A message from Assistant Superintendent Kevin Sederholm:
What a great time of year, the season of giving. One of the benefits of working in the District Office is to hear all of the marvelous acts of kindness and giving that go on throughout our educational community. Here are a couple of examples that have brightened my holiday season so far:
There are many other examples of goodness in our community going on at this time. It’s what makes the holiday season so special. May you all have a wonderful Christmas Season.
