We are Ramblers!
Citizens of the World!
Rambler Advisory Homerooms are working hard this year to develop relationships and build a sense of community within our school. The devastation of the Bahamas by Hurricane Dorian provides us with the opportunity to prove our commitment to the entire world community.
Callahan Middle School will be accepting donations for those affected by Hurricane Dorian from Monday, 9/ 9/19- Friday, 9/13/19.
Students may bring donations to their homerooms each morning. Community members may drop off donations at any time to the front office. If you have a student at our school, please designate their name on the donation, as we are running a contest between homerooms to collect the most items!
The following items are needed:
Water purification tablets
Formula (Preferably already made)
Solar powered phone chargers
Ready to eat foods
Manual can openers
Powdered laundry detergent
First aid items
