The holidays have come and gone and the spirit of giving is just a distant memory…..

But the needs of some of our neighbors in this community are still very real.

The food shelves at the Oxford Neighborhood Service Center have dwindled along with the donations that have helped to provide food for those in need.

That’s why we’re asking you Penn’s Grove to join in the effort to help!

We’ll be running a Canned Food Drive and Competition beginning TODAY!

It will run until next Thursday, February 11th.

Here’s what we’re asking you to do.

Bring in any canned goods or non-perishable food items and give them to your homeroom teacher. Each class room will be given a collection box.

A Helping Hands rep will collect the items every day.

The Top 2 homerooms that donate the most items will win their choice of breakfast in the café during homeroom OR a Friday Fun day with games and electronics during Academic Lab.

So come on Penn’s Grove! Let’s Help Beat Hunger in Oxford and bring in those cans!




Penn's Grove Student Council will be having a NEON/GLOW dance on Friday, February 12th from 2:30 p.m. (directly after dismissal) to 5:00 p.m.  There will be no district transportation after the dance.  Tickets will be sold during lunches for $5.  Students may donate an item to the Oxford Lighthouse Youth Center Food Pantry to receive a $2 discount.  Students must have a signed dance contract to purchase tickets.  Students who receive ANY behavioral referral or an outstanding cafeteria balance will not be permitted to the dance.   All school rules will apply, including the district dress code.  Students will be permitted to wear neon accessories like hats, wigs, temporary hair color, and any glow-wear.  Students must be picked up promptly at 5:00 p.m. by a parent or guardian.

Students who donate an item from the Lighthouse Food Pantry list the day of the dance will get to put their name in for a chance at a door prize and will also receive a glow bracelet at the door.
