The Guthrie National Honor Society is sponsoring a coin drive, and the proceeds will be donated to the Lubbock Children’s Home. Students can bring money that they wish to donate any day from Monday, November 5th to Friday, November 9th. The drive ends at 1 pm on November 9th. The rules for elementary and secondary are different. The elementary class with the most points (one cent = one point) will be rewarded with a “hot chocolate Grinch party”! The secondary class with the most points will be rewarded with a “hot chocolate Grinch party”! Here’s how the point system works for secondary: Coins count as positive points (in the amount of the face value in cents). Paper money (bills and checks) count as negative points (in the amount of the face value in cents). For example, let’s say a senior drops two quarters in the senior bucket. That’s 50 points added to their total. Now a freshman comes by and adds a dollar bill to the senior bucket. Now they lose 100 points from their total! So join in on the fun, and send money for a great cause!

In our efforts to support our men and women who are currently serving our country, we are having a school wide snack drive during the month of October. We would like to show our appreciation to these service men and women by packing snack boxes that will be delivered to them in November. As a school, we will be making cards, writing letters, and assembling boxes along with a program we will have for our Veterans on November 9th. Each grade level will be responsible for specific snack items that have been requested. Please see the following list and work with your children in collecting these items. It would be great to discuss the sacrifices these individuals make for us daily and how we can make some small sacrifices to give back and show them our appreciation.
Pre-K - 1st Grades: Collect packages of gum and mints (small individual packages are best)
2-3 Grades: Individual snack bags of cookies and crackers
4-5 Grades: Individually wrapped Rice Krispy treats or granola bars (no chocolate)
6-8 Grades: Individually wrapped hard candy and individually drink mixes (powders that can be mixed with water)
9-10 Grades: Individual instant coffee packets (no cans) and individual flavored creamer packets
11-12 Grades: Instant oatmeal packets and Ramen Noodles
We are trying to reach Veterans in our community and King County that have served or are currently serving. If you know of someone or have a family member who we can recognize, please let us know! Thanks!
