Monday, February 3, 2020 marked the 100th day of school for the 2019-20 school year. More than that it was the 1,000th day of school for fifth grade students!
To commemorate the milestone the fifth grade classes launched a school-wide food drive to collect 1,000 items of shelf-stable food that will be donated to people in need.
The food drive was turned into a school-wide competition where whichever grade brought in the most food would earn an extra recess. What a great way to celebrate a milestone in the lives of fifth-grade students while also giving back to the community!
Here’s a video recapping the project featuring interviews from the participating teachers and students:
