FFA/FBLA Annual Holiday Food Drive The Centura FFA/FBLA Annual Holiday Food Drive began on Monday, December 4th and will run for two consecutive weeks. Students may hand in food from 8:00-8:20am each morning in the 100 pod. Prizes will be drawn each day for those that bring food. The winning class will earn a pizza party for four periods during a school day. In order to be eligible if your class wins, you must have contributed at least 5 items to your class’s total. Those in the winning class that don’t meet this will have to remain in their classes during the pizza party. (All items must be non perishable)
Holiday Happenings-Service Projects
The Giving Tree is a project that the Centura staff and students have embraced through many organizations and individuals. Over 90 students’ holiday season will be brighter through the generous giving of gifts.
The Centura Student Council is hosting Toys for Tots again this year. Students and staff are encouraged to bring an unwrapped, new toy for the collection box through Dec. 15th.
The student council is also visiting the Cairo Senior Center on Wednesday, Dec. 13th for caroling and cookies.
Toys for Tots Program
The Centura staff is supporting the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. This worthy program collects new, unused toys for underprivileged children. The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future. In return for bringing a new toy, the Centura staff will enjoy wearing jeans on Thursday, December 14th.
