Once again the families at Elkhart Elementary did not disappoint!  Thank you for your January contributions of fruit for the East Texas Food Bank.  Our children are learning that it's important to give because of your generosity.  For February we are asking for boxes of Hamburger Helper. 
Also...keep those boxtops coming in.  I'll mail off boxtops at the end of February.  Thank you for everything you do to make Elkhart Elementary a GREAT PLACE TO LEARN!

The East Texas Food Bank is up and running on the first Thursday of every month at First Baptist Elkhart.  They were so appreciative of the donations made from Elkhart Elementary during the months of September and October.  For January we are collecting canned fruit to donate to the food bank.  Thank you so much for giving back to your community and teaching your child the importance of giving. 

I want to make it my goal this school year to teach our children the importance of giving back to the community we live in.  We now have a branch of the East Texas Food Bank in Elkhart.  It's housed at First Baptist Elkhart and distribution is on the first Thursday of each month.  Beginning in September clients will actually be able to "shop" for the food items they can use.  There are some items that are more expensive for our food bank to purchase so we are going to have monthly food drives at the elementary asking only for those items. 
For the month of September our food item will be canned tuna.  We will have a box in the gym where the students can bring their donation.  I'll remind students also, (probably weekly) what the monthly donation is. 
Thank you for helping to teach your child that "we are all here to help one another."
