North Sanpete High
The school has sponsored a Sub for Santa for the past five years, and this year the students have chosen to carry on the tradition. Student Body Officers are working in conjunction with local marines to raise money for the Toys for Tots Foundation. Thus far, students have helped raise $2,100, and are hoping for more before the drive ends tomorrow.
The officers have chosen the gender of a child they want to shop for with the donation money, and will go shopping at Walmart to purchase the toys on Dec. 10. Toys will be dropped off at Snow West Campus and stored in a warehouse. Afterwards, children will meet with a marine and go shopping the warehouse.
Please deliver last minute monetary or new and unopened toys to NSH before 3:30 p.m. on Dec. 9.

Spring City Elementary
The PTA reached their respective $2,500 book fair sales goal, and soon, kids will reap the benefits with a unique learning experience.
The PTA says they will buy three listening stations with the money they earned. The stations allow students to listen to audio books, a way to improve listening skills, and give teachers the ability to record custom activities for their students. Each station is set up to allow six students to listen to the book at the same time they read the hard copy, Pamela Anderson, school librarian says.
