Caring for Sharing Food Drive and Box Top Drive

Chadron Middle School will kick off our annual Caring for Sharing Food Drive on November 8th.  Students are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to school through December 8th.  All of the collected food items will be donated to a local food pantry.

In addition, this year we will also have a Box Top Drive in coordination with the food drive. Chadron Middle School uses box tops to fund our T.H.I.N.K. Cardinal Pride Positive Behavior Support Program. In the past we have also used the funds on playground improvements and playground equipment like balls and bins.  

The Caring for Sharing Food Drive and Box Top Drive is a grade level competition.  The grade that collects the most non-perishable food items and/or Box Tops will compete in the "Nothing But Net" games on December 20th, which is the last day of school for the semester.  This has been a really fun event that students and staff look forward to. Parents are welcomed to attend the games and we will also do end of the quarter student awards including Cardinal Effort, Perfect Attendance and T.H.I.N.K. Cardinal Pride.

The Caring for Sharing Food Drive and Box Top Drive are two of the three school-wide service projects that Chadron Middle School sponsors annually. As the holidays approach, both of these events are an excellent way for students and their families to help out their school and community.

Happy Holidays!
