Sabre Nation Community Service Day is May 3

On May 3, our students and staff participated in Sabre Nation Community Service Day. Part of the day was be spent packaging food for Kids Against Hunger. Kids Against Hunger was at the high school and every student and staff member had the opportunity to package meals for one hour sometime during the day. After packaging the meals, students viewed a short video that helps us better understand how vast and severe the problem of hunger is and of how many people we helped to feed.  The groups packages over 113,000 bags of food.

When not packaging meals, homerooms worked on service projects throughout our community. Homerooms brainstormed ideas and worked out the details of their projects. The primary stipulation was that the project needed to be within walking or biking distance of the high school (no driving or bussing to the locations). A few of the wide variety of projects included working with other teachers and students at PME and SMS, planting trees, cleaning up city parks, cleaning up the trees and wooded area around the high school, and painting different areas in the high school.  The homeroom that held the car wash also raised over $200 in donations for Kids Against Hunger.
