Dear Parents and Community,

Our 3rd Annual Food Drive for the Northport Food Pantry has started. We are raising non-perishable food items from November 5th – November 19th. Our goal is to raise over 1,500 items. As an incentive, the staff has put the following in place:

If students raise 750 items - Mr. Martin and one lucky teacher will get a Pie in the Eye.

If students raise 1,000 items – Mr. Martin will Kiss a Pig.

If students raise 1250 items - Mr. Martin and the Middle School Team will do the Polar Plunge.

If students raise 1500 items - All 3 events will happen (Pie in Eye, Kiss a Pig, and Polar Plunge)

Please help us reach our goal. Here at Drinkwater School, we greatly value giving back to the community that is so good to us. Please call at 338-3430 if you have any questions.
