Bizzell LEOs Holiday Service

Our Bizzell LEOs held a toy drive for a deserving family in our community this December. They wrapped the donated gifts as well as donating many from their own homes or purchases. They also rang bells for the Salvation Army and hosted a Christmas party with cookie and stocking decorating, ornament making, Christmas music, and lots of food and fun! We are so proud of our LEOs and how such a small group of students can accomplish so much for our school and community.

Bizzell LEOs had another great day volunteering at the Fairgrounds. The cold weather did not slow down our LEOs as they packed boxes and loaded cars with food for needy families in our community. Great job, LEOs!
