Thankful Giving
Our Ambassadors had a really great idea of having a holiday food drive. We started the food drive on November 1st and ended it on December 17th. We collected non-perishable items and paper goods. The amount of support our ambassadors and teaching staff showed was exceptional. Our collection totaled 1,355 pounds of food. All food collected went to the local food bank.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Teachers and students worked together to collect and bag items for the food drive. When the food drive ended, both staff and students helped box items and carried them to the food bank truck.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

I have seen more school improvement since the food drive. More students want to be involved with school activities and more are interested in the FUTP 60 program.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We accomplished this goal by promoting the food drive through our school news and teachers. We also made it a friendly competition between homerooms with the winning homeroom receiving a prize.
