Lake Country Academy students demonstrated the core virtue of teamwork with a food drive for the Salvation Army.

With help from family and faculty, students in 4K through eighth grade held 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.

For 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.

Lake Country Academy's curriculum emphasizes a different core virtue each month. Teacher teams spearhead activities such as presentations, classroom skits, take-home activities and community service projects to demonstrate virtues such as, respect, responsibility, generosity, perseverance, courage, compassion, and citizenship.
