Canned Food Drive
Tobias is in the middle of a canned food drive (Nov. 19th-Dec. 10th) to help needy families. Each year the Hillsboro Elks provides assistance to over 700 families in need in Hillsboro with food and gifts during the holidays. Your nonperishable donations are needed to help make this happen! The Elks really needs peanut butter, juice, baking goods, rice, pasta, boxed meals, canned meat, soup, beans, boxed cereals, and baby food. If you are able to donate any of these, it would be greatly appreciated. To help encourage donations, the grade level with the most donations will get an ice cream party!

Hey Parents! Remember when bundling up kiddos this winter- it's also head lice season
Having a discussion with your kids is a great way for you and them to learn the facts about lice and hopefully prevent it. Remind your kids not to share hats, scarves, pony tail holders, hair accessories etc.

Facts: Head to head contact is the most common way for people to get head lice. Animals do not carry head lice. Personal hygiene or cleanliness in the home or school has nothing to do with getting head lice.

Here is some more information/links-


Background checks
Friendly reminder: Background checks must be renewed every two years. Background checks are required to participate in volunteering, Spirit Assemblies, field trips and any event during schools hours. You can renew or complete yours now! Link to HSD - https://volunteerapplication.hsd.k12.or.us/
