The Poolesville Minority Scholars Program is having its first meeting this Wednesday during lunch in room 22! Help close the achievement gap in Montgomery County and do so much more. Email phs.minorityscholars@gmail.com for more information.

The class of 2021 is sponsoring "Paws for the Season"! We are collecting dog and cat kibble, toys, blankets, cat litter, and other goods! Please see flyers around the school for a complete list. All donations will go to the Humane Society. Donations will be taken through December 18 and can be dropped off in room 46. Thank you!

Girls can code, too! Will be hosting an Hour of Code on Wednesday, December 11 from 11:15 to 11:55 in room 28. Whether you are a beginner in programming or an expert, this is the place for you. Everyone is welcome, regardless of your gender. If you identify as male, you must bring someone who is not male. 2 slices of pizza will be provided for those who sign up today. Sign up at https://forms.gle/gMytunXJNvBFUKGh8.

The SGA has once again teamed up with the United States Marine Corp for its annual Toys for Tots drive. Please keep in mind the children in need in Montgomery County when shopping this holiday season. We are collecting unwrapped, new gifts valued around $10 for children ranging from ages 2 to 17. The drive runs from December 2nd through December 13th. Because our food drive was so successful as a House vs House competition we have decided to do the same for Toys for Tots. There will be a box for each House in the Falcon Foyer. The House to fill their box first wins. Thank you in advance for your support.

The American Red Cross Blood Drive is December 11th in the Old Gym. Anyone 16 or above can donate. Please check the height and weight requirements for blood donation. One bag of blood can save three lives. Everyone who donates will receive a $5 Amazon gift card. Email poolesville.arc@gmail.com to sign up. Please donate.
Save the date for our upcoming PTSA Dining Out night. We hope you and your friends will join us on Wednesday, December 11th at Chipotle in the Kentlands, between 5PM - 9PM. Make sure you bring the flier posted on your grade’s classroom, and the PTSA will receive 33% of all proceeds.
