### CANNED FOOD DRIVE

Ms. Lunte, one of our math interns, has organized a canned food drive to benefit Clare House. The class submitting the most canned/non-perishable goods per student will earn candy or baked goods for their entire class!

Boxes were placed in each math classroom today, with a sign-up sheet located inside. When you bring in an item, fill out your name, class, and how many items you placed in the box. The contest will continue thru Friday, Nov. 18.

Additionally, Mr. Sondgeroth will award 1 point of extra credit for each item you submit ... up to a total of 10 points. If we don't win, but finish in the top 5, then I will provide the treats for the class. Sounds like a win-win situation to me!
