Please read these important reminders and mark your calendars!
1. We are thrilled to announce that
not only did we meet our goal for the project 351 Food Drive, but we collected more than twice our goal!
Originally, we were hoping to collect 600 pounds of food and we ended
up weighing 1,557.74 pounds! This will truly help the
over 200 Holliston families who are currently using the food pantry and will
also support families throughout the Boston area when Walmart matches our
donations so great job everyone!
As promised, we will be having a spirit day to celebrate our
accomplishment and participation. Tomorrow will be “Favorite Hobby Day”.
Everyone is invited to wear clothes that represent a hobby that he/she
enjoys. The following are some examples:
you play a sport you could wear a jersey
you act you could wear a t-shirt from a show you were in,
you play an instrument or love to sing you can wear something with
musical notes on it,
you enjoy art you could wear a beret or
you love playing video games you could wear a shirt with a picture
of a character from one of your favorite games.
Please remember that all images must be school appropriate and no
props/toys should be brought in. Feel free to be creative with how
you show your hobby. We look forward to seeing everyone showcase their interests next
