Food for Friends
The character trait for February in the elementary school was kindness. Demonstrating that trait, elementary students brought in non-perishable food items to donate to those in need. The first grade team organized a friendly competition between the grade levels. Each grade was challenged to bring in items in an effort to collect 100 items per grade level. This competition culminated on the 100th day of school. Students enjoyed checking the bulletin board frequently to determine which grade held the lead. In 2016, over 1,300 items were collected!
