The Annual Turkey Challenge Canned Food Drive is now underway and will end at 12:30 pm Friday Nov. 19th. The grade that collects the most food items wins. The food will benefit the Collinsville Community Food Bank at the Church of Christ. All Students Council members will be going door to door during the next several days to various Collinsville neighborhoods to collect cans. All donations will be greatly appreciated.

Stuco will be sponsoring a Fall Dance for the HS Friday Nov. 19th from 8:00 to 11:00 pm in the HS Commons. Dress is casual. Western Attire would be great but not required. Music will be by DJ Express. No Junior High Students will be allowed to attend this dance. Students wanting to bring someone who is out of school or from another school must see Mrs. DeLozier for them to be approved. Admission is free if you bring 10 food items or $3.00 without. Proceeds benefit the Food Bank.

Boone Upky's report
on the recent Stuco State Convention in Norman follows:
Officers who attended were: Pres. Allyson Smith, Vice Pres. Jayme Howard, Sec. Nichole Phelps, Treas. Zach Mendez, Reporter Boone Upky, Parliamentarian Taylor Whisenhunt, and Officer-At-Large Hillary Brown.

This convention is a vital part of the expansion of our leadership abilities in the school and beyond. We attended daily sessions that focused on the different "dimensions of leadership", which was the main theme of the convention, every session had a special keynote speaker, who gave their stories of leadership and how they overcame adversity to bring themself up to be successful. We also attended a community service workshop that gave us ideas for different ways to get our stuco more involved in the community. There were also workshops to attend where we given ideas for themes, videos and music for our pep assemblies. We came away from this experience with more ideas and views on our position of leaders in this school.

I raked leaves this weekend, but I have no clue where I can dump them and there's no more room in the big green monster. Is there a place nearby that will let you dump bags of leaves and branches?

Dear "New Guy",
The City is tentatively planning a community collection event in the Spring. At this time we ask that you use your poly cart for yard debris. Another idea is to compost your leaves or arrange for additional ploy carts to deal with seasonal waste.
