From 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. on Halloween night students will be going door to door collecting hats, mittens and scarves. All Cottonwood residents are asked to help donate new or gently used items. Your contributions will be greatly appreciated and given to the local food banks.

Prairie High School is getting ready to start up their Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) group again. What we do is participate in medical events down at state conference, which is in Boise normally around the beginning of April.
We are in need of volunteer work. Last year, we volunteered at the hospital and blood drives. We also helped at the Ski Patrol Refresher Course. We are going to be having a baked food sale on the 29th at Rienerís starting at 8 in the morning.

Juniors, interested in preparing for college? Wednesday, October 17, at 8:30 a.m. the PSATís will be held for all interested junior students at the Prairie High School cafeteria. The cost is $13 per student, and to reserve your spot for the test please give the money to Judy Forsman at the high school. Some may wonder what good the PSATís will do for them in the future. The test is a great way to prepare and practice for the SAT and/or ACT. After taking the test the student receives feedback on how they scored on the test. They are also entered into a scholarship competition to receive money for college. Upon taking the test, colleges also send you information about their school. If you have any questions or need more information, contact Lydia Deiss at 962-3901.
