SOUPER-Bowl of Caring is coming! Feb 6-10th week.

We invite Crestwood students and staff to bring non-perishable food items to school during the week leading up to the Big Game. Students will "VOTE" for the team that they think will win the Super Bowl game (Feb 12th, 5:30 pm) by placing their donated food items underneath the helmet or logo of one of the teams playing.

The donation area will be located in the Cafeteria. Each morning of SOUPER-Bowl week, we will announce which "team" has the most food items collected so far. We will announce the food drive "winner' the day after the actual Super Bowl game.

With the help of our amazing PTO, all donations will go to local food pantries that typically run low with their inventory this time of year. Our students will get an opportunity to learn about local ways our community supports the underserved and participate in a fun way to help!
