The fourth grade Student Leadership Team at Prairie Ridge Elementary School conducted a Food Drive as part of their service strand of the leadership team. All donations were given to the HACAP Food Reservoir in Hiawatha which supports programs like Operation Backpack in our Prairie schools.

The students collected 562 items which provides 696 meals for families. This project supports one of the core leadership beliefs for students at Ridge of being of service to others.  The others are that students demonstrate Prairie Pride and leadership. Student leaders develop projects for each of these core beliefs.
