South Middle School Food Drive


How much food would you donate for the chance to throw pies at the principal? The principal, assistant principal and counselors at South Middle School (SMS) offered that exact incentive to the advisory with the highest number of food donations for the Waukee Foundation Scholarships Food Drive.
