Scarves, Hats, and Gloves Drive!!!

December 3rd ~ December 19th

Student Council is sponsoring a collection drive for scarves, gloves and hats.  These items will be donated to Knoxville Pays It Forward, who will distribute them to homeless shelters! They can be gently used or new! Adult sizes  please. All items can be dropped off in the main hallway near the Second Harvest canned food items.  In addition, Student Council will gladly take other winter items you may want to donate such as coats, winter jackets, socks, and hot hands.  Thank you!

LIBRARY

Do you have any of these supplies laying around your house that you want to share with the Maker Community at WVMS? CLICK THE LINK BELOW.  Every child, member and parent can have access to these materials for making new things. Our Maker Monday events are from 3:30-5pm every Monday and the Maker areas will also be open from 7:35-8:20am each morning and until at 5pm on Mondays and Friday afternoons. We are in the process of organizing supplies in several of the library rooms for student access and use. The goal is to have areas for student/staff/class use by the end of January. Thank you for your help with this!  Any questions?  Feel free to call me or send me an email.  Janet Getz  865- 539-5145 janet.getz@knoxschools.org
