Mrs. Greenberg’s reception is postponed

Dear Hickory Point Community, 

Per Mrs. Greenberg’s request, the community reception on January 23, 2020, has been postponed. 

Northfield Food Pantry Collection 

Who will be this year's “Souper Bowl” Champ? Once again, the Philanthropy Committee and students will decide who will win with our Annual "Souper Bowl" fundraising event for the Northfield Food Pantry. Students can bring in donated items and place them on the table of the team they think will win! The table with the most donated items will be determined as the winner of our "Souper Bowl"! The Northfield Food Pantry needs cleaning supplies, baby formula and food, all beverages (coffee, tea, 100% juice), instant mashed potatoes and rice meals, and other non-perishable foods. The "Souper Bowl" game collection will start on Tuesday, January 21st! Who will be our winner?? It's up to you!
