Skyridge Admin Team
It is time to “Stuff the Bus!” Now through December 13 our Skyridge students are collecting non-perishable food items to make a difference for others in need within our Camas community.
All donations received through December 6 will be included in our annual “Stuff the Bus” competition between Camas and Washougal cities and school districts. Bins are placed throughout the communities and donations collected. On the final day, which this year occurs on December 6, buses from each school district weight in on truck scales, then journey throughout their district to gather the donated food items and return to the scales for final weight in and celebration. The real winners are the communities, individuals in need and students which experience compassion during this competitive process. This long-standing rivalry between the Camas and Washougal communities has sparked enough generousity to feed many! Last year 85,000 pounds of food was collected!
Please remember that the following days in November are non-school days!
Monday, November 11; in observation of our Veterans’ Day Holiday
Wednesday through Friday, November 27-29; in observation of Thanksgiving
