Alki Elementary joins Arbor Heights in food-drive challenge

Back on Monday, Arbor Heights Elementary teacher Marcia Ingerslev shared the news that her class was collecting 100 items for the West Seattle Food Bank in honor of the upcoming 100th day of the school year – and challenged any and all other elementary classrooms in WS to join them. Today, we have word that Alki Elementary has accepted the challenge – fourth-grade teacher Anna Coghill sends word that notes will go home with students on Monday (there are no classes in the district tomorrow) to tell families that EVERY Alki classroom is hoping to collect 100 cans (or other non-perishable food items) by February 20th! (Anybody else? Let us know!)

    Kudos to both teachers! Ms. Ingerslev is just one of the many reasons that Arbor Heights Elementary has a great community of teachers, students and parents.

    I am so excited. I can’t wait to tell my students. We have collected 47 cans so far.
