We would like to thank all of you (so very much) for helping to make our 2014 Holiday Food Drive a HUGE success.

Your generosity helped us collect over 1100lbs worth of food!

Our School's donation was presented by our Turkey Suit Teacher, Ms.May and received by the Tucson Food Bank at a "special" Crew Time earlier this week.  Everyone in attendance learned just how truly valuable this donation is for our community.

We hope You and Yours, enjoy a happy and safe Thanksgiving break.

Greetings Everyone!

The PTA is so very proud of this year's Food Drive effort!  We met our goal of 100% classroom participation.....which means ALL 15 Classrooms had donations for the Tucson Food Bank!


In addition to meeting our goal, we also surpassed LAST Year's donation of 855lbs!  This year, our school will be donating an unbelievable 1098lbs of food!  GO HUSKIES!!  WE are certain that we will go over the 1100lbs mark by Monday morning, as more food keeps trickling in! THANK YOU!!

The Tucson Food Bank is thrilled and a representative will be on hand at this coming Monday's Crew time.  During this special Crew Time (starting at 9am), Sam Hughes Elementary's Turkey Suit Teacher will make the official Thanksgiving Presentation.

And the winning class is .....Ms. May's!!!!  Her class made several nominations and then voted on 2014's Turkey Suit Teacher. 

Ms.May's classroom nominees were:
