A Message From Our Student Ambassadors!
Let’s show our love for the Matsu Valley and donate to the Food Bank of Alaska! The Student Ambassadors of Fronteras are excited to present a food drive which will benefit the people in our community. This food drive will begin Tuesday, February 12th and end Tuesday, February 19th. To add some friendly competition to this event, we will be having a contest between these four teams; K/1, 2/3, 4/5, and middle school! We will count the number of items raised from each team and the winning team will get a popcorn party organized by the student ambassadors! But the real winners will be the people of the Matsu Valley! More information will be coming soon. If you have any questions about this exciting event please contact the Student Ambassadors.
