GHS Student Council Sponsors Toy Drive

The Galena High School Student Council sponsored a toy drive during the month of December.  Businesses, community members, and faculty donated money for the toy drive or "adopted" students from the toy drive list to help make Christmas better for some USD #499 students.  Students at the high school also participated in a competition to see which seminar could have the highest percentage of student participation in donating money.  As an added incentive, students that donated money also get out of seminar on the last day of school prior to Christmas break.  The winning seminar for the toy drive competition was Mrs. Amber Spencer's seminar.  This seminar earned a pizza party for their efforts.  The second place seminar, winning a pop party, was Ms. Jessica Shank's seminar.  Rounding up the top three was Ms. Madison Kirch's seminar, earning a candy bar party.  With the help of the community, faculty, and students, STUCO was able to provide toys or gift cards to 157 students this year!!!

Thank you so much to the community members and businesses that participated in our toy drive.  Merry Christmas!!!
