Jack Is Back!

November 16th - December 9th

Our Sinnott Student Council is sponsoring the annual Jack Emery Food Drive to help our local families in Milpitas.  Each student is encouraged to participate to help us reach our school goal. 

This year, our school goal is 5,000 cans and $3,000 in cash for our school donation.  We CAN do this if we all work together to help our community.

Each Sinnott student’s goal is 7 cans and $4.00 in cash.  If you only want to donate cash, then each student would need to bring $10.00.

****If one student brings in 20 cans or $20 in cash, that student will earn a free dress pass for one week.  Cans or cash for this award need to be brought in on the same day for counting purposes.****

We want everyone to participate.  Milpitas has a poverty rate of almost 8% and some of our local families really need our help.

All cans and donations need to be collected in classrooms for counting purposes.  Cans 4-16oz. count as one can, over 16 oz. counts as two cans.

Let’s show our community we care and we CAN reach our goal this year! WILDCATS RULE!

If your student has a medical condition, such as asthma or severe food allergies, and  requires medication to be kept at school, an authorization to administer medication form is required. The form is to be filled out by the doctor prior to bringing in your student’s medication.
