Civil War Food Drive starts March 4th

Longview Public School students Julia Wright and Faliha Amjad might go to different high schools, but are working together as the Advertising Chairpersons for the upcoming Civil War Food Drive. Their role is to get as much information out as possible, so everyone knows about the food drive.

Julia Wright and Faliha Amjad

In a recent interview, the two shared their thoughts on this year’s food drive goals. Concerning the amount of food they hope to drive Amjad said, “The goal is to get as much food as possible to help people in our community.”

The theme for this year’s food drive, “Food for love, food for life.”

Volunteers started dropping off paper bags to households over the weekend in preparation to start getting the word out about the food drive. If you do not receive a grocery bag at your house, you can still donate. Food can either be put out for pick up on March 9, taken to any school or dropped off at Fred Meyer.

When asked about the competition behind the food drive Wright said, “It is a competition for the schools in a good way. The civil war aspect just creates fun for each school.”

The pair said any size donation is welcome and appreciated.

Star Polisher – Andrea Bergquist

Who would you like to thank for being a star polisher?

“Mrs. Bergquist,” writes Phoebe Robeson, 12th grader at R.A. Long.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Phoebe says, “She is kind, funny, and is NOT boring when she teaches. It is a joy to be in her class and also in the FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) Club she is helping run. I was nervous starting high school for the first time but Mrs. Bergquist made me feel welcome and help me get caught up in her class real quick.”

As part of our district’s focus on student connectedness, we shared part of a poem called “The Star Polisher” with our middle school students and invited them to consider how Longview Public Schools staff have made a difference to them. Read about more of our stars and star polishers here.
