Monday December 5th

YAC meeting postponed to collaborate with Art Club Project, Xmas Stockings for Britton Elementary!

Service-Learning Open House Thursday. Experience the sweet taste of the holidays. Come see the beautiful 80 stockings made by the art club/YAC and have a piece of Russell Stover Candy. Service is "like a box of chocolates" you never know what opportunity will take your breath away.

Holiday children's projects needs your help

Collection of gently worn sports, states, university, volunteer t-shirts for Africa. Jessica G. will deliver them Xmas eve.

Saint Jude's Hospital: Looking for art supplies/gifts in the list provided by St. Jude's Hospital. List available at the Woods Community Room, the Service-Learning Office and bulletin board at Woods. Mrs. Milligan will deliver donations over Xmas Break.

MLK Day is approaching. If anyone is interested in sponsoring projects that day, please see Mr. Huestis or Mrs. Clay ASAP.

Suggestions for Stocking Project:
1. Make arrangements directly with the Principal and the 1st grade teachers, not just the administrative assistant.
2. Consider getting the list of students to personalize their stockings.
3.Give a list to the office and Dean of students of people who would be missing lunch, not just the number of students for lunch attendance and food not to be wasted purposes.
