It’s the season for giving and that’s just what Roni Smith’s 4th grade class at Woodland Elementary School did.
The students held a successful canned food and non-perishable drive for the Glen-Ed Pantry, collecting 2,214 items – which far surpassed their goal of 1,750 items.
The students created flyers to hang around the school that reminded their fellow students and staff about the importance of giving to those less fortunate. Smith said the students enjoyed seeing so many of their peers throughout the building contribute to the drive and that they were excited about how they would be helping the community.
Smith added that for reaching their goal, her students will have a pajama day on Friday.
