Thanksgiving Food Drive

Fall is such a wonderful time of year and my favorite season, with it comes some of my favorite initiatives to support the community while building community and character of students at our school. Each year we do a Thanksgiving food drive to support a community agency in our area. This year from October 3rd-28th we're asking students to bring in canned food and non-perishable items to support the Salvation Army. When students bring in items they will be placed in a designated location in their classroom, they can also put them in the box in the front office.

Each Friday members of the student council go around to each classroom to collect the items. This week I look forward to meeting with them to create posters to display around the school, morning show announcements, and develop some sort of incentive to promote donations. I look forward to sharing the amount of goods we collect!

The holiday's are a wonderful time of year to be thankful for the things we have while also providing support to others in our community. Help us help others to enjoy a healthy and delicious meal!
