Wednesday last week was the 100th day of school, and thus the presentation ceremony. The kids of the school gather in the gym and make displays of their items- then they present them to the head of our food pantry. This year they all collected 2,079 items of food and other non-perishables (shampoo, toilet paper and the like) which will go to help the nearly 175 families that our pantry supports!
There is something about a gymnasium full of kids singing "We Are the World" that gets me choked up! Maybe I can blame it on hormones this year, but I think not! I get teary every year. It is such a cool thing our school does, and it is such a great lesson for the kids to learn.
