The ShakeOut is an outstanding way to ensure community preparation. Parents, we hope you will take a few minutes to discuss preparation with their students.
A Great Chance to Support those in Need
For the next few weeks our school will be collecting canned goods and dry goods to donate to the local food bank. Our food drive will help hungry families in our community. Community food drives like this help make sure those children and their families can get emergency food assistance when they need it.
Receptacles will be set up outside the school on Fridays during our homework drop off and materials packet pick up for your convenience.
We know that this is a challenging time for everyone. Please, only consider giving if you can. Every single donation helps, and together we hope our combined donations will make a real difference for those in need. The food bank is asking for nutritious canned and dry goods. Below is a .pdf of some suggestions:
