Spring Station Middle School News

[ 0 ] January 24, 2013 |

Spring Station Middle School’s student council will be hosting their first-ever Mustang Chili Cook-off on Feb. 23rd from SSMSMustangsLogo11-2pm. Club advisor, Alex Fisher says, “Last year, student council kind of slowed down during the winter. My co-advisor, Heather Lyftogt, and I wanted something fun to keep the kids involved during this time of year. We felt this was a great way to get the community involved in the school. And, who doesn’t like chili?”

Chili isn’t the only thing this school is cooking. Club advisor, Heather Lyftogt, mentions, “The kids get really excited about giving back. We had a really successful canned-food drive at the beginning of the year for The Well and HHH. The kids had mentioned wanting to have a clothing drive. So, we decided to incorporate a winter clothing drive to benefit Graceworks as part of this one day event.” Items accepted for the clothing drive include: winter hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, coats, or sweaters.

If you thought chili and good deeds were enough to keep you busy, you are wrong! The cook-off will also involve face painting, a cup-cake walk, and carnival games with prizes for the kids. “It’s going to be fun for the whole family,” 7th grader Jessica Settlemire and student council member states. This event is a great way to entertain a family for an afternoon with each “activity ticket” costing only $1. That means you can buy a bowl of chili, a drink, and play a game for only $3! Or, you could buy 2 bowls of chili, get your face painted, and enter the cupcake walk for $4! What a great way to spend an afternoon!

7th grader, Madi Goodside tells us, “I can’t wait to try all the chili. I hope Ms. Fisher lets me be one of the judges!” So, if you love great food, good deeds, and games, you should definitely come to the first ever Mustang Chili Cook-off on Feb. 23rd!
