Harvesters Food Drive

Congress Student Council is hosting a Harvester’s food drive for non-perishable items to benefit local families in need. The food drive runs from Wednesday, November 7th through Tuesday, November 13th.  Last year we collected a windfall of over 5,000 items and needed more than 20 barrels to hold it all. This year we’d like to surpass last year’s record-breaking giving. Student Council is collecting items in front of the nurse’s office from 7:15-7: 35 am, so please consider cleaning out your pantry and joining us in helping those in need!

End of the Year Awards Criteria


Congress Parents,


We are going to base our end of the year awards for the Congress Awards Assembly on the following point system.  Please talk about this with your student and encourage them to earn as many points as possible. 


Cumulative GPA after third quarter:  3.0 to 3.49 is 1 point, 3.5 to 3.85 is 2 points, 3.86 to 4.0 is 3 points

Only kids with a 3.0 or better for the first three quarters combined will be considered for any award.


School participation or community service is worth 1 point.  There is only one point available for this category.  Students can pick either a school participation activity or do 5 hours of community service.


 Any involvement at Congress that is not required for a class counts for school participation.   
School participation opportunities could include, but are not limited to, the list below.

Community service (5 hours). Students will fill out an online form with this information in April. We will have the link available in teams’ websites and social media pages and will announce it on the morning announcements as time comes. Keep in mind community service does not have to be through a formal organization. Helping neighbors and extended family is encouraged.

No ISS/OSS is 1 point


2 points get a blue ribbon
