Student Council Updates
The GMS Student Council has been very busy with a number of service projects to benefit our school community. We've been meeting every activity period and on Thursdays after school to plan and work on projects.
For Thanksgiving, the student council collected enough food to put together complete turkey dinners for 11 families in our Griswold community who wouldn't be able to celebrate the holiday otherwise. Students assembled all the fixings for a complete meal for each family. Turkeys were donated by our local Better Value store.
Thanks to every one who donated food. This is the first time the Student Council has held this type of fundraiser. Since it was so successful, we look forward to doing it again next year.
Winter Clothing Drive
We have been collecting gently used coats and new hats, gloves, mittens, socks and scarves since after Thanksgiving break. Student Council members made a commercial that has been airing on our morning announcement reminding people to donate these items if they can. So far our school community has been very generous with donations. The gently used coats will go to both the Youth Center and the Madonna Center and the other items will go to the Youth Center. With the cold weather upon us, we're sure these items will provide warmth to many people.
Candy Cane Sales
We have also been selling candy canes. This is an annual fundraiser at GMS and a time to put everyone in the holiday spirit! Students were able to purchase candy canes for friends to be delivered at the end of the week before vacation. This fundraiser required all student council members to sell, sort, pack up and deliver candy canes. To be sure every student got into the holiday spirit, the Student Council provided candy canes to all students! No one left school without a candy cane.
