Junction Hill School Christmas Assistance Program 2021 For the last 19 years Junction Hill School has been able to provide food and gifts to families within the district. This has been made possible by our yearly food drive as well as generous donations from individuals within our community. As we approach the upcoming Christmas season, we are looking forward to supporting our students and families again. If you know of a family or your own family could benefit from food and/or gifts during this holiday season, please contact DeAnn Sellers, School Counselor, at 256-4265 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. As in previous years, families applying for Christmas Assistance must be enrolled in the Junction Hill School District and must not be seeking assistance from another organization.
Seasons Greetings! This time of year is a special time for our community and school. Last year, due to Covid, we elected to not host the Christmas program. We are planning to host a Christmas Music program this year for students to perform for friends and family. However, after missing an entire year of choir practice, quarantines, and coordinating around multiple activities, we are pushing back our concert date to January 21, 2022. On January 21, at 6:00 PM, Junction Hill will present a winter concert. Families will be invited and at this point we do not have restrictions on attendance. However, please note that details such as crowd limits, time, or date can change as the day approaches. Our hope is that everyone will have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and that we will be able to celebrate with each other on January 21, with a much anticipated music concert under the expert guidance of Mr. Larry Dame. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as our students work to prepare for the winter concert. Please check back when we return in January for any changes in circumstances due to inclement weather or other Covid changes. Sincerely, Junction Hill.
Junction Hill Food Drive It’s time for the Annual Junction Hill Food Drive! The food drive will begin 11/29 and end on 12/13. We are going to use the point system again this year to inspire some competition. Instead of counting the number of items, we are going to use a point system for the different types of items that are donated. Students are to take the items to their homeroom teacher or it can be dropped off during the student drop off time in the mornings. Food that is brought in or dropped off should be bagged or boxed and labeled with the child’s name and class so that points can be awarded. The class with the most points in the elementary and the most in middle school will win cookie decorating parties supplied by PTO. If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Amanda Jens. *Cash Donations-$1=1pt. Please do not send in out of date items as points will not be awarded for those.
