  • Kids Can Hunger

    We are so excited for KIDS CAN HUNGER 2018 to get started! This is a food drive supporting God's Pantry that we will support here at our Middle School. There will be barrels placed in the front foyer starting Wednesday, 2/7 through Friday, 3/23. Grade levels will be competing to see who has the most donations. Barrels will be weighed, and the winning team will receive a reward.

    Each can you donate to the food drive will take $1 off of your library fine. Bring your can to Ms. Calico first, and she will waive your fine and put it in your grade level’s barrel for you.


    • You can donate cash or online by selecting your school, $10 donated = 100 lbs. of food. The school with the most pounds (=food + converted CASH donations) will win in each division which are based on enrollment numbers. The link to donate is https://give.godspantry.org/kch - select the school, and start donating!

    Toyota is sponsoring the event again this year! They are providing $500 to the winner, which will go to the YSC to help purchase needed supplies! A huge thank you to Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Kentucky and to each of you for participating!
