OCPS Canned Food Drive Nets over 900 Items
The students, faculty, and staff at the Oglethorpe County Primary School collected 953 canned goods. The canned food drive was underway from October 17th - November 15th. Each day, Mrs. Kathi Mathews counted the number of items donated daily and added a feather to the turkey which proudly displayed that number. Students like Joey Olson, pictured here brought in canned goods multiple times and Karli Watkins donated 39 canned items. These items will be donated to the local food bank to help those in need. The students, faculty, and staff of OCPS are really trying to make everyone’s holiday season a bright one!
Every Wednesday the students, faculty, and staff display their panda pride by wearing shirts, pins, skirts, pants, shoes, or jewelry that display our school mascot, the panda. Come on and join us in showing that panda pride!
