Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience for people with special needs ages 14 and older. On February 8, 2019, the fifth annual Night to Shine was hosted by 655 churches from around the world for approximately 100,000 honored guests through the support of 200,000 volunteers! Night to Shine is sponsored by The Tim Tebow Foundation. A few members of Shorecrest's Upper School SPARC Club volunteered at the event and two share their thoughts here.

Fifth grade is partnering with the organization Youth Partners with Haiti to collect items needed in a school and orphanage in Haiti. We are collecting gently used or new recreation items such as games, puzzles, used sports equipment, and dolls. We are also collecting gently used or new educational items such as pencils, paper, flash cards, arts and crafts materials, crayons, and markers. Please check in closets, garages, and toy boxes for items to donate. In the words of the fifth grade students, "Be More! Be a Haiti Hero!" They are collecting through February 22.

Relay For Life is around the corner, and as a community we are trying to reach the goal of raising $100,000 to support cancer research. To raise money in Lower School, students can participate in the Links Project. For every dollar your child brings in, they will receive one colored paper link. The links are then connected to form a paper chain in each classroom.
Interact is hosting a toiletry drive starting Monday to collect travel-sized toiletries for the Ronald McDonald House. When new families arrive at RMH, they will be provided with these supplies. Please bring in any travel-sized toiletry items (toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner, soaps, lotion, etc.) by February 22. Collection boxes will be in Landy Hall, Upper School.
