Before the students at Schallert Elementary took their Thanksgiving break, they had a can food drive where they collected more than 2,500 canned goods and non-perishable items.

The class with the most cans collected was Jana Leo-Garcia's class. Students in Leo-Garcia's class earned a pizza party and the teacher received a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble.

All items that were collected have been given back to the local community - Saint Elizabeth Works of Mercy. Schallert Elementary staff, students, and parents are committed to helping our local community!
