  • Sanford Breadbasket 2014  
    Ms. Slease's STRIVE group went to the Sanford Breadbasket. They planned, prepared, and served a meal of chicken noodle soup, mashed potatoes, sandwiches, fruit salad, desserts, and lemonade as well as helping to prep a few items for later this week. Not only did these girls feed almost 200 people at the breadbasket, when we went to taco bell for lunch, they also decided to each donate a dollar to feed children when they got their food. Each dollar fed four children which means these girls used their own money to feed 40+ children. They kept saying how eye opening their experience was, and how much more they want to do for the Breadbasket. They are planning a return visit after their next project--a coat drive for those who go to the Breadbasket.

    Ms. Farley's Strive group has once again met their goal for the month. In November, the group decided to gain another 60,000 grains of rice. Combined with last month's rice, the group has a combined total of 131,790 grains. From today through the end of December, the group has once again decided to reach the goal of 60,000 grains of rice. This means we should have a total of 180,000 grains of rice by the New Year! Way to go Rockets!
