SSES Food Drive 2013

written by Mitchell & Haley ~ Grade 3

At the start of December, our classroom started a food drive.  We each went around to classrooms to collect food for the food drive.  Each day we collected different items.  We had can day, pasta & sauce day, breakfast day, soup day and dessert day.  The families at SSES were very generous.  Our school collected 686 pounds of food!!!

Next, we boxed up all of the food and put it into a car.  The food went to Evergreen Basic Needs to provide food for families that needed a little extra food at Christmas.

We were very proud of our school!

A special thank to Mrs. Poloski's grade 3/4 class!  What a wonderful initiative ~ a true celebration of the spirit of giving!  

Thank you to our SSES families for giving so generously.....your generosity will share Christmas warmth and love with others throughout the holidays!
