The middle school Student Council hosted an annual food drive at MVAO's Anthon Center. Students in preschool through eighth grade brought in 822 non-perishable food items this year! Most of the food items were distributed to local families this past weekend with the final box of donations collected Monday morning. Mrs. Gran's third grade classroom was the top classroom at 107 items and Mrs. Kahl's homeroom took the lead for the middle school! Both of these groups of students will enjoy an ice cream party in January. This was a very successful food drive!! The StuCo collected and counted items twice a week since the beginning of December. Members donated their time to pack up food items in boxes for pickup. We have an amazing group of leaders in the middle school that played a huge role in the success of this food drive!
