Dyson Collins makes a convincing nerd as he holds up some of the canned vegetables that were brought in for the Southside Elementary School Student Council canned food drive.

The Southside Elementary School Student Council recently held a canned food drive to help those who needed extra help during the winter season. Each day had a different theme, and certain items were requested. Winning classes got to do special activities on a Friday, and the top two students who brought in the most canned food from each classroom got to participate in a money scramble.

Monday was Nerd Day. Students and staff dressed like nerds and brought in canned fruits and vegetables.

Tuesday was Stone Soup Day. Students who brought in cans of soup got to go see Assistant Principal Layne Talbott act out a book entitled Stone Soup while Principal Reita Vaughn read the story.

Wednesday was Baby Day. Students dressed like babies and brought in baby food, which was then donated to the First Choice Crisis Pregnancy Center.

Thursday was Pasta Day. Students and staff could dress as crazy as they wanted if they brought in pasta.

Friday was Hodgepodge Day. Students could bring in any kind of non-perishable food item. A reward assembly was held at the end of the day with fun Fear Factor-type activities, such as a balloon bop, a Cheetos toss, cracker whistle, a money scramble and several other activities.
