              Congratulations to Lewiston School District on their Fill the Bus Success!

              A special thank you to the people from the transportation, maintenance, and custodial departments that loaded and unloaded the many tons of food and non-perishable items that were collected today. 

              This event is a continuation of our district giving to others through service learning for our students.  It demonstrates to our students that even in times of a pandemic and all the hardships that it encompasses, we can still think of others and their needs, be kind to one another, and be our best selves. 

              Bus 1/truck collections for the Salvation Army weighed 23,040 pounds. Participating schools were Sacajawea, Orchards, Camelot, and Centennial.

              Bus 2/truck collections for the Community Action Food Bank weighed 7,976 pounds.  Participating schools were McGhee, McSorley, Webster, Whitman and Jenifer. 

              This year’s total is 31,016 pounds! This is quite impressive.

              Please note that additional items a student may select beyond the daily qualifying breakfast and lunch meal, such as additional milk/entrees, will be charged to the student’s account.  Students taking milk only continue to pay the “milk only” price of $0.40.
