Tammy Cotrone’s kindergarten class at May Moore found a unique way to celebrate the milestone 100th day of school on Feb. 13. As a cumulative project, the students collected more than 100 perishable food items to donate to the outreach program at Ss. Cyril and Methodius Church to help hungry Deer Park families.

Cotrone placed a grocery cart in her classroom, and for every item the students brought in for the food pantry, they received a sticker and marked down the total number of donations on a chart, working toward a class goal of 100 items, which was quickly surpassed.

“I taught my class about giving back to our community,” said Cotrone. “The children got so much out of this special 100-day project. They loved helping others and twere excited to watch the cart grow each day.”
