Food Drive/Student Council: Afraid you’re not going to get in the holiday spirit this year? Start things off on the right foot by donating to the annual Can Food Drive, presented by the Appleton North Student Council. We have made it a competition between freshmen teams. Freshmen, please bring cans to your core teachers and Student Council will tally the cans donated between November 2-20th. The winning team will receive a special incentive. Not a freshmen? You too can help your alma mater team by dropping off cans to your old freshmen team. Let the competition begin! Go blue…no wait gold…go silver!
Attention Club Leaders! You too can partake in the canned food drive. We will have a Battle of the Clubs canned food drive. The club or activity with the most cans between November 2-20th will also be given a special incentive of choice. Let’s get the school involved and make this the best collection yet.
Interested in forensic science or crime scene investigations?
