    January Service Project
    The Student Council Service Project for this month is Hopeful, Helping Hands for Hurricane Victims. 

    The idea behind this project is that we wanted to help in the recovery efforts for Hurricane Harvey, Irma and Maria. Copies of large handprints were sent home prior to the holiday vacation. We thought students  who wish to participate, with their parents’ approval would earn money from family members for completing service tasks outside of school. As they complete tasks, they write the tasks on the handprint, decorate it (if they’d like), cut it out and bring the handprint and money they earned to school. The Hopeful, Helping, Hands will be hung in the cafeteria for all to see.

     

    The money collected will go to One America Appeal, which is a nonprofit organization founded by all five living former U.S. PresidentsJimmy CarterGeorge H. W. BushBill ClintonGeorge W. Bush, and Barack Obama. This joint effort was originally designed to encourage support for recovery efforts for Hurricane Harvey, but was then extended to include areas most affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.  All funds collected through this fund will go into a special account established through the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation and will be distributed to assist hurricane victims.

     Update: Thank you to everyone who participated. We collected over $1,000.00 to help hurricane survivors!


    E...A...G...L...E...S...EAGLES! Spirit Week!!!

     The Student Council celebrated the Eagles going to the Super Bowl by hosting an Eagles Spirit Week Friday, January 26th until February 2nd.

    Our TAKES PRIDE theme for January was service and since the Eagles were considered the underdogs in the  Super Bowl, we decided to show our support by helping the animals at the Last Chance Ranch, an animal shelter in Quakertown.

    Deibler students who wished to participate in our Eagles’ Spirit Week, brought in various items to donate. Each day, we featured a different item needed at the shelter.

    The list below highlights the focus item(s) of the day as we spelled out E..A..G..L..E..S… Eagles! 

    Then on Friday, February 2nd, students and staff wore the Eagles colors/gear.  

    E…Extra paper towels.

    A…Animal food (dog, cat, bunny).

    G…Gently used clean blankets and/or towels.

    L...Litter (clumping kind) for cats and kittens.
