WRIGHT WEEK OF CARING

THIRD GRADE LOVES, CARES, GIVES

What is a week of caring?

This week, December 7 - 11, Wright Elementary will be growing leaders by participating in a week of caring! The third grade classes will be working together to show that we CARE about our students in the Shelby County school system. The third grade students will work together to run a food drive that will support the county's backpack program.


The Backpack Program provides non-perishable food items to those children that do not have enough to eat during the weekends. Food is sent home with these children on Friday to help fill their tummies over the weekend!


We have chosen to partner with this program as it benefits over 300 students in our school district, and 47 right here at Wright Elementary!

HOW DO WE HELP?

Beginning Monday we will be collecting the following items:


Chef Boyardee meals - pop top only

Soups - pop top only

Vienna Sausages - poptop only

Poptarts

Individual cereals

Cereal bars

Peanutbutter crackers


PLEASE REMEMBER ALL CANS MUST BE POPTOP


Send your items to school with your student and we will take care of the rest!
