Grade 9 Core

Each year BJM pairs with St. Francis School for our Christmas Hamper program. This year St. Francis has requested that we do things a bit differently and provide non-perishable items that go "beyond the Christmas meal". I have attached a sheet that explains this in more detail and also lists the items that we will be trying to collect in our room for a family in the St. Francis community. I have asked the students to discuss this with you at home in regards to what your family can donate to this project. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
