A message from Mr. Hooks, Principal of Pepper Drive School, regarding the Santee Santas Food Drive: 


All right PRIDE Academy, Pepper Drive is offering you a challenge! If your school raises a higher percentage of food items for the Santee Santas Food Drive than Pepper Drive, our principal, Mr. Hooks, will visit your campus and welcome your students to school in a costume! Do you want to see Mr. Hooks at your school in a costume? Step up your collections. You only have until December 5!

All the best,
Ted Hooks - Principal
