Schools throughout the Three Village Central School District gave to others this Thanksgiving by collecting hundreds of pounds of food items for local families and area soup kitchens.
First grade students at W.S. Mount Elementary School hosted a Friendsgiving Food Drive. During the initiative, the students used their math skills to tally the donations received daily and create pie graphs to visually display the collection efforts. The items were boxed up and delivered to several local families just in time for Thanksgiving.
Minnesauke Elementary School fifth graders in Marylou Nilsson’s class collected nonperishable food items which they used to create food bags for the St. James Soup Kitchen. The building’s sixth graders also created food baskets and made placements and centerpieces for Minnesauke families. Even the building’s younger students got into the giving spirit, as kindergartners made Thanksgiving meal baskets for others.
