Gockley Elementary School students are sharing a treat with their local community food bank. Continuing Oct. 25 and 26, bring in a canned food item.

There is a box at the school office to drop off the items. There will also be a box in the front of the main school entrance for families and friends to drop off any items when they come to watch the parades.

This is a great way for our students to learn the importance of helping and showing kindness to our neighbors and community.
