This past week, donations were collected for Backpack Blessings. These donations are used to buy food for children and families who are less fortunate than us.

Each class competed for the biggest contributor. The class who bought the most pledge cards would receive a pizza party.

After a long week, the announcement was finally made that Ms. Hinds fourth period was the winner, contributing $139 to the drive. Following her class is Ms. Lowry in second place with $59 and Mr. Ledford in third place with $46.
