It’s amazing the reach our students can have and the good they can do in our community. So far this year we’ve had students collect more 1,000 pounds of food for the local food bank, organize a basic needs drive for a local shelter and send more than 60 boxes filled with surprises and necessities to children in third-world countries.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Studies have shown that eating breakfast can have long-term health benefits. Simply stopping for breakfast can reduce the occurrence of obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.
When Ava Medina was in kindergarten she remembers looking up to the fifth graders at Harriet Thompson Elementary School. She always knew when she made it to fifth grade, she too would be a leader of the school. “They teach us that we’re leaders and that we can do these things,” said Medina, who is a fifth grader this year. It’s a message ingrained in the culture of the school - Harriet Thompson is growing student leaders.
