Help support those who are hungry in our community by bringing in food for the Woodlawn Food Bank. We are collecting canned and boxed staples like soup, pasta, sauces, and canned meat. Bring these in to your homeroom class by the end of the day today!!!. Homeroom teachers are asked to send students with food to Mme Boudreau's room 215 where they will be counted for their class total. The homeroom with the most items gets bragging rights.
