Concessions help for Basketball
Concessions has slots available for volunteers to work both boys & girls basketball games. Please see the link to sign up. If a slot has a name in the “activity” slot, then only someone willing to work for that activity can work that slot. All blank activity slots are open for anyone to take. Please note that the money you earn can go to After Prom as well as any other activity. It is a really fun and easy way to help our school. If you have any questions, please email or call me. We are still seeking someone or a group of people who would want to take concessions over for the next school year. Contact me as well if you are interested. It truly is a great way to get to know your kids school & everyone within the school. Thank you. Kaydene Hubert

Please Clean Out Your Closets and Send Us Your Shoes
Once again, Silver Creek is sponsoring a SHOE DRIVE to benefit SOLES4SOULS! This American based community service organization supplies shoes to people in need in over 127 countries on 5 continents! Over 300 million children around the world are without shoes. New and gently used shoes are sent directly to distribution hubs. Old shoes considered “ONE MAN’S TRASH AND ANOTHER MAN’S TREASURE” are used in an exciting initiative to help break the cycle of poverty. They are donated to micro-enterprise programs and generated into recycled materials for local entrepreneurs to re-sell or trade for goods in their communities. For many, this can mean the difference between life and death. So take this opportunity to dig up your unwanted … too big … or too small … flip flops, crocs, high heels, dress shoes, slippers, boots, cleats, or sneakers and load up our collection boxes. We’ll even be happy to take all those OLD STINKY ones! Please keep them in pairs by tying them together or securing them with a rubber band. Thanks for your help!
SOLES4SOULS Changing the World, One Pair at a Time. Check out the flyer for more information.
