Donation Drive:
Now through Mon, Nov 19th we will be doing our annual gift drive to support Gifts for Teens. Gifts for Teens makes and delivers holiday bags for homeless teenagers. This year Bret Harte will be collecting winter hats and gloves. There will be a contest between first period classes.  We will count how much each first period class donates and the class who donates the most will win a pizza party!
