The annual CMS Caring for Sharing food drive is in the books and it was a huge success! For the past 10-years, the Chadron Middle School Student Council has organized a canned food drive among the grade levels. This year's goal was to collect 2000 non-perishable food items between December 6th and December 13th. Students brought the collected food to their 1st block classrooms and the final count was done after school on December 13th. CMS students crushed their goal by collect 2942 non-perishable food items that were donated to a local food pantry.
Congratulations to the 6th grade class for winning the class competition with 1073 non-perishable food items. The 7th grade came in a close 2nd with 1051 followed by the 8th grade with 596 and 5th grade 222. Thank you to all of the community members and parents who helped support the service project. A special thank you goes out to the CMS student council students and sponsors for organizing this great service activity.
