May Moore Celebrates 100th Day of School with Food Donations

To celebrate the 100th day of the school year while teaching her students to give back to the community, kindergarten teacher Tammy Cotrone installed a grocery cart in her classroom at May Moore. Her students brought in more than 300 canned and boxed food items for donation to the outreach program at the local St. Cyril and Methodius Parish.

For every item the students brought in for the food pantry, they received a sticker and marked down the total number of donations, working towards a class goal of 100 items, which was quickly surpassed.

“The kids got so much out of it and they loved helping others,” said Cotrone. “They were so excited to see the cart grow each day.”
