Each of the district’s five high schools, as well as elementary and middle schools, held student-led and school-wide service projects designed to encourage students to understand needs within the community. Combined, the schools collected 42,000 non-perishable food items, 38,000 meals, $21,000 in monetary donations, thousands of toiletries, books and toys.
