“Special K” has taken on a whole new meaning at in Farmington. For the second year in a row, sixth graders on Team K held a four-week drive to collect cereal for the Farmington Food Pantry, one of many food pantries across the state facing dwindling supplies.
When students on Team K demonstrate outstanding citizenship, they receive “Special Ks” at team meetings, which are then added to a bulletin board display. With the Special K theme in mind, a cereal drive seemed perfect. Students donated over 150 pounds of cereal.
“Our parents and students have shown great generosity and we are all proud,” said Mr. Buccetti. Many parents and students donated multiple times during the drive, he said.
Kerri from the Farmington Food Pantry said that the shelves were sparse before the donation and they are very thankful for the help.
West Woods students are no strangers to giving, having collected thousands of dollars for UNICEF and hundreds of items for needy families during the holiday season.
