With just three weeks left in the first trimester, students are excited and anxious to put away their textbooks and start Thanksgiving Break. But before students check out completely, they should take note of the many community service opportunities available through the rest of November, and lend a helping hand to those less fortunate than us.
o Once a week, students can walk to an elderly home, Manor Care, which is located on Falls Road right across the street from Bullis. Each week there is a new and fun activity the students conduct with the elderly people across the street. In the past they have done things like make cards, decorate pumpkins, and decorate cupcakes.

o The Diener School is located on Falls Road, just five minutes away from our campus. It is a school for special need kids. Bullis high school students have the opportunity to participate in a buddy system with the Diener kids, and visit them every Thursday. An application is necessary for this activity.

*Will continue after Thanksgiving Break*
Thanksgiving Pie Bake
o Each year, Bullis students dedicate a few hours of their Saturday to baking pies in the cafeteria for families to eat on Thanksgiving. Up to 60 students can participate in the bake; the event is always a fun and memorable one.
Saturday, November 23rd
o Before Thanksgiving every year, each Bullis advisory puts together a basket of food for a family that cannot afford to buy Thanksgiving dinner. Each member of an advisory will be assigned certain items to bring in for their basket. Make sure you do not bring anything in glass jars, or anything that needs to be refrigerated.
November 5th – November 19th
Be sure to contact community service leader Dr. Romeyn, or Community Service Club Presidents Amanda Cohen, Amanda Greenberg, and Allison Leasure with any questions regarding the upcoming events and activities.
