Homeless at Heart

Box City is our kickoff for Homeless at Heart, an initiative headed by our students to make an impact in the lives of homeless students in Cleveland County and the Oklahoma City metro. How do they help? Students collect basic essential need items and carefully pack them into decorated shoeboxes, complete with a handwritten letter of encouragement. These boxes are lovingly delivered to local schools on Valentine's Day!

Register

This event is open for 5th grade to 8th grade students. Registration for this event is $10 and includes a late night dinner, breakfast, and a can of spray paint for our box decorating contest! Sign up for updates on this event using the button below!
