Hazel Grove Helping the Lees Summit Community
Hazel Grove Elementary took part in our Nutrition Council Challenge to collect non-perishable food items for our community food bank. Nutrition Council, Student Council and FUTP 60 reps made posters and placed them all around the school. They even talked with the bus drivers and encouraged them to bring food to donate. They came in 2nd place out of our 18 elementary schools. We are proud to say that this drive restocked our Food Bank and fed many members of our community that were in need.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

They met before school to help with making posters and placing them throughout the school. They distributed barrels to collect the food throughout the building's entry ways. When barrels where full, they put the items in boxes ready to be picked up and to have enough room to collect more.
