Holiday Food Drive at Spanish Oaks

Spanish Oaks Elementary News - Thu, 11/06/2014 - 6:21pm

Our annual Food Drive will run from Tuesday, November 4, 2014 - Monday, November 10, 2014.  Last year through your wonderful support, Spanish Oaks families helped us collect over 2,400 items, more than doubling our school goal.  This year our goal is to TOP last year!!

Tabitha’s Way Food Pantry has been a part of the Nebo School District for the past 4 years providing food and supplies for families in need.  Today they provide food for approximately 2,500 people every month.  They are able to accomplish this task because of the donations they receive from food drives.  “Together we can stop hunger and meet the needs of our struggling student families!”

The foods they run out of most are:   canned meats, peanut butter, tomato sauce, noodles and cereal.  But, all foods are welcome and will be used!   All donations stay here locally.  Thank you so much for your support!

Author Adam Sidwell visited East Meadows Elementary on Tuesday, October 2, 2014.  He taught the students the process of story writing.  His book Evertaster has been on the Amazon Best Seller List.  He also just released another book called, Chum.  A drawing was held for a free autographed copy of his book, Evertaster. The winner of that drawing was Kabren Baller from Miss Hammari's sixth grade class.  If you would like to get a copy of any of his books there is an order form in the front office of the school or an email was sent out to parents.  Those forms and money are due back by Friday, November 7.  Adam will be here on Friday to sign any of those books if students would like.
