PACK'ER UP CHALLENGE
Did you just do Spring cleaning and have a bunch of toys or clothes that don't fit you and you don't know what to do with it? If you have items you would like to get rid of, bring them to Goodwill and remember to mention the Howards Grove Middle School! Goodwill is holding a competition for Wisconsin schools. Whichever school donates the most items to Goodwill gets a visit from wide receiver Donald Driver from the Green Bay Packers. The second and third place schools get 12 autographed Donald Driver children's books. The competition runs from April 1st-April 30th!

SPREAD THE LOVE/PEANUT BUTTER FOOD DRIVE
The Middle School will be participating in a peanut butter food drive starting on March 1 and ending on March 31. Students and staff, please bring jars of peanut butter in and deposit them in the designated box in the lobby outside the office. The peanut butter will go to the Sheboygan County Food Bank and be distributed to families in need in Sheboygan County. The more peanut butter jars that we bring in, the more families that we feed.
REALITY DAY AT THE HIGH SCHOOL
Howards Grove High School is planning their first ever Reality Day. The date is set for Wednesday, April 24. The event will include a walk-through budget simulation. All seniors will be given a job, salary, marital status, number of dependents and debt. Based on that information they will choose housing, insurance, retail items, and make other decisions about budgeting based on their assigned financial status.
We are looking for quite a few community volunteers to help us run the simulation stations (insurance, housing, car sales, utilities, retail purchasing, etc.) Volunteers would need to be at the high school by 8:15 am. The event should conclude around noon. Please contact Bev Biederwolf or Kim Zimmer at the high school if you would be interested an able to join us.
Effective immediately, there will be no more eating in the gym, due to the mess of food and soda bottles that was left in the gym. The only drink allowed in the gym going forward will be water. Thank you for your cooperation with this matter.
This year the Middle School is collecting tabs for the Ronald McDonald house. Save your soda can and soup can tabs and put them to a good cause!
NEW SECURITY AT MIDDLE SCHOOL
There has been a new security feature installed at the front of the school. We now have a camera and buzzer system. Any student, parent or visitor arriving after the start of the school day will need to get buzzed in and check in through the office. We will do our best to accommodate anyone waiting to get into the building; however, there may be delays at times, depending on what's happening in the office. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we advance our security to make our building a safer place.
