Seniors, it seems like the time is going faster and faster. It is time to really start focusing on Scholarships and finishing up any last-minute college applications. The scholarship workshop will be on January 14th!  I will make an individual list of the scholarships that you qualify for through our high school locally and any others I know about. Please sign up so I know how many donuts to get!

WeCare After Prom Fundraising...

SHOE FUNDRAISER ~ WeCare After Prom has partnered with Funds2Orgs to host a shoe drive in Grinnell.  Boxes will be set up at home basketball games and wrestling meets.  We will also be hosting a Drive By- Drop Off for shoes on Sunday, December 4th at the back parking lot of Grinnell High School from 2 PM-4PM.  Our goal is to collect 2,500 pairs of shoes.  We want shoes that do not have holes and without blades (such as ice skates). WeCare After Prom will be paid by the poundage.  

A shoe drive fundraiser goes beyond raising money for After Prom. After our shoes are picked up, they will be sent to developing countries to create job opportunities. It’s estimated 300 million people don’t own shoes. Shoe drive fundraisers help provide inventory to over 4,000 micro-entrepreneurs who sell the shoes to support their families. In turn, they help themselves out of poverty with a hand up, not a handout.

Anyone with questions may contact Alicia Blankenfeld, Jill Hollingsworth, or Amy Keenan. 

PAMPERED CHEF ~ We have partnered with Diane Ward for a Pampered Chef fundraiser. Order by Monday, December 12th for Christmas Delivery, Here is the shopping link: https://www.pamperedchef.com/party/wecareafterprom1108


We Care After Prom is looking for 6 individuals to assist with Sunday’s shoe drive. Contact Jill Hollingsworth if you are interested. 


Please turn in your signed Commencement Participation form to the main office before winter break.

Extra forms are available on the counter in the mail office.


If you have detentions that need to be served, please report after school to: 

Ms. Barker’s room (85) on Mondays & Tuesdays OR Mr. Peterson’s room (73) on Wednesdays & Thursdays.
