Caring for Sharing Food Drive
Chadron Middle School students are collecting non-perishable food items for our annual Caring for Sharing Food Drive. The food drive will run from November 18th-December 4th. Students should bring the food that they collect to school and turn it into the classroom that serves as their grade level's collection center (5th grade: Mrs. Merkel's room, 6th grade: Mr. Fernandez's room, 7th grade: Miss Dobry's room, and 8th grade: Mrs. Waugh's room).
To make thing exciting, the students are competing in a class competition to see which grade can collect the most food. Traditionally, the class that collects the most food wins the opportunity to play the CMS faculty in a basketball game on the last day of the semester. We always have a lot of fun!
Last year, the 8th grade class class won the competition by collecting 1416 non-perishable food items. Overall, CMS students collected 3367 non-perishable food items, which was donated to a local food bank.
Thank you for your support in the very worthy cause.
