Food Drive
Arapahoe Charter School's  second grade classes held a school-wide food drive November 14 - 18.  They encouraged participation through themed days including: Macaroni Monday, Tuna Tuesday, Wheaties Wednesday, Thirsty Thursday,  and Fruit and Veggie Friday.  On Monday, November 21, Mrs. Daniels and Mrs. Harper, with para-professionals Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Cayton, took their classes to visit the New Bern branch of the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.  The students toured the food bank and learned about food instability in the surrounding areas and ways the food bank helps.  Students also learned how the food bank helped victims of Hurricane Matthew.  At the end of their tour ,the students were able to weigh their donations and learned they had collected 272 pounds during their week-long drive.  For more information about the food bank and how you can help, please visit http://www.foodbankcenc.org/site/PageNavigator/branch_newbern.html.
