The Intermediate School Peer Helpers launched the 7th Annual ThanksforGiving Food Drive last month with a presentation on citizenship, which also happens to be November’s No Place for Hate theme.
As part of the presentation, students were asked to think of one word that best describes their ideas of citizenship. Words like respectful, responsible, reliable, honesty, compassion, and courage were written on paper leaves which were collected and displayed on a beautiful tree outside of the Digital Media Center. The slogan: “Citizenship Falls on All of Us!”
In the days leading up to Thanksgiving, students, parents and staff contributed generously to the food drive which benefited the local Meals on Wheels Program. The CV Intermediate School community collected a grand total of 2,677 items which will support the Meals on Wheels program for a full year!
