K5 Food Drive A Success!
The K5 students at AJ Whittenberg participated in the 3rd Annual Kindergarten Thanksgiving Food Drive.  The students raised over 1,800 items for the food drive!  The students used a graph to keep count of how many items each class had brought in.  The students counted the items, graphed the items, and then continued to bring in items each day to try to be the class with the most cans!  The students really enjoyed the food drive and loved the fact that they were "giving" to our community.  We gave the items for the food drive to Project Host.  The students lined the K5 hallway and passed the cans to give to Project Host while chanting "We LOVE to give."  The students loved this and did an awesome job!  We love supporting our community and we are so glad we were able to give over 1,800 food items to Project Host!  Way to go, K5 Engineers!
