FCS will be collecting toys for Riverbend students who participate in the after school program at the West Monroe Community Center. Their goal is to have one gift per child so they really need our help. Gifts should be no more than $10 and suggestions are Nerf footballs, Barbies, Hot Wheels, stuffed animals, Legos, and board games but nothing that requires batteries. You can bring your unwrapped toys to FCS meetings on Wednesday mornings at 7:30 or drop them off in Mrs. Counts' room 4104. Last day to brings toys will be Wednesday, December 6th.

 

If you are in the French club and you have not signed up to work a basketball game yet, please go by room 2203 to do so.
