North Star Students Lead the Way During Food Drive

The holiday season is often a time where people look to others and find different ways help those less fortunate. The spirit of giving wasn’t lost on the second and third graders of North Star Elementary School as a handful of classrooms teamed up to host a school-wide food drive. Marilyn Kreta is a second grade teacher at North Star and said the idea for the food drive came from the students after learning about Kodiak’s community.
The students decorated boxes, made posters and wrote their own announcements about the project to read in other classrooms around the school. Kreta said the project was both a great opportunity for the kids to learn about helping others, but also an interactive way to hone their writing, public speaking and math skills.
The food drive wrapped up last week, and all total the classes raised about a dozen packed boxes of food, which was divided evenly between the two local food banks.
