  • Science Class Food Drive Running January 11-22

    It's that time of year to kick-off the 2016 Food Drive with the Science Classroom Food Drive Competition. In years past our school has done this event in November. In past, over 3,600 pounds of food was collected and donated directly to Madison families. Help your students reach a goal this year. We will collect and donate directly to WS Food Bank to help our West Seattle community.

    Please donate canned vegetables/fruit/soup, apple sauce, pasta & pasta sauce, chili & beans (dried or canned). These are suggestions– any canned food is appreciated.

    **If pulling from your pantry. Please be sure that canned foods are not damaged or food shelf life has not expired. We have had to dispose of a lot of canned and pasta goods in the past. Thank You

    Please have your student(s) drop off canned goods to their science teacher's classrooms during the food drive dates (above). The competition is based on weight, and the winning class will be announced on Tuesday, January 26th and given much praise for doing service to our community. They will also receive the coveted “Turkey Cup” trophy to display in class for the year.

    Thank You for your support.
    If you have any questions please reach out to your student's Science teacher or Lora Bunch
