100 DAYS 100 CANS

To help celebrate 100 days of school and National Catholic Schools Week:
"Growing Hearts and Minds", we are having a canned food drive to help fill the
food pantry of St. Luke's Parish in Irving. We would like each classroom to try
to collect 100 cans of food to send to the pantry. We will begin the collection on
January 28th, which is the 100th day of school! Please send the canned goods in
with your child to help us with this cause. We will collect the canned goods
through Friday, February 5th, which is the close of Catholic Schools Week.
Thank you in advance and God bless you!
