This month our character trait is compassion. A person who has compassion for others wishes to do more than what is asked of them. We have an opportunity to help the Mini-Cassia food banks by helping to bring cans of food during our annual canned food donation drive. Many people from our community and in our school depend on these donations to help them through the winter months. Advisory classes will be collecting cans through today. The advisory class with the most donations wins a pizza party. Remember peanut butter and cans of meat count as two cans. Lets help our community by showing how compassionate our staff and students at West Minico can be.
