     Student Council hosted a “Trick or Treat for Cans” on Halloween. Leadership, Student Council and other student volunteers carpooled to their assigned neighborhoods where they collected cans, as well as boxed food.

     Student Council students met in the Leadership room Nov. 1 during Falcon Time and third block to sort and count the cans.

     “People were really happy that we were doing this to better our community,” junior Aubrey Williams said.

     The donations were going to the Northland Christmas Store, which is an organization that helps families in need in Clay County, Mo. By Tuesday, students collected 2,376 cans and had more coming in, said sponsor Andrea Holmes.
