Students First for Ocotober 22

From a new place to climb to generous donations from our community partners, here’s a quick snapshot of some of the great things happening in our Immokalee area schools this month.

Lake Trafford Elementary (LTE) is looking forward to the 2015 Fall Festival to be held on October 30th, 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. There will be lots of games, prizes, and food for everyone to enjoy. There will also be a wonderful performance from the second grade students. LTE also showcased new playground equipment for students to enjoy. Principal Joy Alvarez tells me, “The kids absolutely love it!”

Pinecrest Elementary (PCR) will be holding another Harry Chapin Food Bank event at their school on October 27th, starting at 3:30 p.m. PCR would also like to thank Lowe’s Home Improvement for their recent donation of cement blocks to help fix the school’s vegetable garden.

Finally, great job to Deputy Varaly and the Highlands Elementary (HLE) Troop Support Action Team! They recently collected lots of goodies to send to members of the U.S. Military overseas.
