We appreciate all that you do to support Olympus Junior High. Our Olympus Junior Food Drive for the Utah Food Bank began on Wednesday, November 4 and will run through November 18. Thanks to all of you who have already donated. This is a competition between the 7th, 8th and 9th grades. For every 500 item points donated, each grade can earn one point toward the All for All Competition held November 24. In addition, the grade that wins the food drive will win donuts for their entire grade. Students are to drop their food drive donations off in the morning before school or during lunch in the commons area. All items donated are worth one point, except for the following most needed items: Peanut butter – 4 points; Tuna fish – 3 points; and canned stew, chili and fruit – 2 points each. Please make sure that the food you donate is not more than a year past the expiration date.
We also have Spirit Week and the All for All Competition coming up. Spirit Week runs from November 19 – November 24, with the All for All Competition between the grades held on November 24. There are dress up themes for each day of Spirit Week that the students are encouraged to participate in. The students were given a flier on Friday which detailed the dress-up themes. Please see the attached document if you need another copy of the dress-up themes flier. You can also find this information on our school webpage. Thank you!
