Coats for Cairo - Due Dec. 2
The SPPCS 8th grade is again sponsoring a Coats for Cairo drive through Dec. 2. They are collecting gently used or new coats for the Daystar Community Program in Cairo, IL. If you would like to donate, please drop off new or clean used coats to the school office. The greatest need are children's coats in all sizes, women's size XL, and men's size XXL. Please view the flyer on this link. Thank you for your generosity!
Funderwear Drive - NOW through Dec. 8
Our annual Funderwear Drive, friendly competition with ICS, is going on now! We are collecting new t-shirts, socks, hats, gloves and underwear for families in need in Cairo, IL. As a reminder, Immaculate Conception School in Columbia will also be collecting items. The school who has collected the most items by December 8 will be announced at the annual Funderwear basketball game held at Gibault that night, and will be awarded the traveling "Tighty-Whitey" Trophy during halftime. SPPCS won the trophy last year, so WE WANT TO KEEP IT! As an incentive, Mrs. Buchheit has agreed to give a NO UNIFORM WEEK for the WHOLE SCHOOL if we win the trophy! Please send in items by December 8th to have your items counted in the class contest. Join in the epic battle - Falcons versus Crusaders - in the fight for the one and only TIGHTY-WHITEY Trophy.

All classes will visit Santa's Cottage on December 7-8. We are in need of workers to help students with purchases. If you are available, please consider helping out!
