Frighting Hunger was once again, a huge success! This is student council's first big event of the year, which is a great bonding time for our members, bringing us closer while having a fun with the kids that come to "trick-or-treat" at our stations.
Here are just a few of the faces we saw participate in the second annual No Shave November competition. This competition raised almost $800 for the American Cancer Society. Thank you for all of your contributions towards a great cause.
Yesterday Student Council was handing out Hot Chocolate to students before school started to get everybody ready for the first annual Winter Week. The event functions much like Spirit Week, which is put on by the cheerleaders at the beginning of the school year, but hopes to keep the student body involved in the school toward winter break.
Monday: StuCo is handing out hot chocolate
Tuesday: Ugly Sweaters
Wednesday: Socks and Scarves
Thursday: White Out for White Christmas (Wear all white; first day of the winter musical)
Friday: Flannel Friday
Thank you for staying involved in Southwest Spirit.
Last week Students Council members spent their lunches collecting "Thank You" cards from Southwest students in honor of Veteran's day and the upcoming holiday season. Over the course of the week we were able to collect over 100 letters from students which will all be sent to our troops to show our appreciation for what they are doing. We will be sending the letters out this week, so if there are any last minute letters please give them to Mrs. Hammers ASAP.
Thank you once again for your contributions and enjoy the rest of the term.
Yesterday marked the end of the annual Southwest Food Drive. The collection period lasted over the past two weeks, and all of the food was donated to Lincoln Food Bank for their Frighting Hunger Drive. In this drive all of the LPS schools come together and compete to see which school is able to collect the most amount of food (in pounds) through the month of October. Throughout this time, Southwest collaborated with Scott Middle School and together we were able to collect 1,567 pounds of food, enough that the Food Bank volunteers had to bring out extra crates to fit everything. These donations will be sorted through by the volunteers and then distributed throughout Lincoln to varying food panties. So far we are the only school that has turned in donations, so thank you to all those who donated and helped to kick off an amazing cause with some amazing donations.
