Scouting for Food is coming to your neighborhood. The scouts from Pack 555 will be dropping of plastic bags on your neighborhood doors with a request to collect donations for the food pantry. This philanthropic event is something simple but extremely rewarding to our scouts. If you know a scout in your neighborhood and didn't receive a bag, let them know you would like to help out too. Scouts will be coming by your house to pick up the bags of donations around November 2. Your grateful contributions keeps them participating every year. So if you get that friendly bag on your doorknob, please help them assist the needy families in our community. Thank you in advance.

Although we will not be banning Rainbow Loom or related bracelets and necklaces at this time, please know that for some students they have served as a distraction at school and on the bus. If children are seen distracting others or using them inappropriately, the teachers will be sending them home to avoid any further distractions. The same holds true on the school bus. If students are instructed to bring them home, they may not bring the jewelry on the bus or back to school again. Thank you!
