Student Council Shops for Christmas

Members of the high school student council shopped for Christmas presents to be given as part of the local community caring and sharing project.  The student council is responsible for all fall concessions and ½ of the winter concessions for high school activities. They spend hours providing this service for the district.  The money raised is then used for local service projects such as the sharing caring Christmas fund for Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas presents for children.  This year the council voted to give a total of $700.00 for those projects.  This group is also responsible for putting on the homecoming dance in the fall and they vote to award most of the remaining money at the end of the year to be awarded as scholarships for seniors.  As much as $4000.00 has been awarded for scholarship in the past.  This is an example of busy young people taking time out of their day to first volunteer to work and then to take time for those less fortunate.
