We worked with student leadership team members to collect food for the local food pantry. Students made posters and collected food and gently used winter clothing to donate.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students and teachers worked together to decide what type of food items should be selected. Students made signs to advertise the project.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Signs were made, information was put out in the morning announcements, the parent newsletter and on the PTO Facebook page.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

We have a high level of poverty in our student body, Many students cannot bring in food to donate. Some teachers brought in non-perishable food items and used them as rewards for student behavior so students could earn something to donate.
