Emily G. Johns students helping load the truck with the food pantry donations.

In conjunction with the Rockin’ Christmas Celebration in Plano, Emily G. Johns students held a building-wide contest to collect non-perishable food items and paper products for the Kendall County Community Food Pantry.  The school collected a total of 3,013 items.  Emily G. Johns School houses the district’s students in grades 4-6 and the classroom with the highest number of items, per grade level, was rewarded with a pizza lunch! 

Staff members at P.H. Miller and Centennial Schools collected money for the food pantry as part of a Staff Spirit Week.  Staff members donated money so they could wear comfy clothes the week leading up to Rockin’ Christmas and raised $400 for the Kendall County Community Food Pantry.  With those donations, the food pantry will be able to purchase $3,200 worth of food!

Thank you to the District 88 families and staff members who donated to the food drive or Spirit Week.  Your kindness will truly make a difference for local families this holiday season.
