a food drive for the Salvation Army Food Pantry. Through school
assemblies, faculty skits and a visit from Development Director for the
Sheboygan Salvation Army Heidi Cain, the students learned how food
pantries help the community and about the increased need for donations.
four weeks, the students collected over 2,000 cans and boxes of food,
filling over six donation barrels for the pantry. The students learned
that as a team they were capable of making a big difference. Their
project demonstrated that the school "team" could work together with
the larger community team in order to help others.

demonstrate virtues such as, respect, responsibility, generosity,
perseverance, courage, compassion, and citizenship.
