Kiski Area Upper Elementary Does It Again
News, May 2016

Kiski Area Upper ElementaryPrepare to be wowed; they have done it again. The 5th and 6th grade students and teachers at Kiski Area Upper Elementary in Washington Township worked incredibly hard last winter to provide not only food but also winter clothing for those who need it in our communities. The students collected over one ton (2,000 pounds plus) of food. And they also collected hundreds of scarves, hats and pairs of gloves. It is the third year in a row the school has collected food for Kiski Valley Food Bank. In three years, they have provided over 3 tons of food for our area.

What a great thing that these students would spend time and energy helping other people that they don't even know! Their work in this project reveals a kind-heartedness for those in need. It reflects well the investment by their parents and teachers, as well as by the Upper Elementary administration. The Kiski Valley Food Bank Board of Directors and volunteers wholeheartedly say, "THANK YOU" to the students and Upper Elementary staff. A special thanks go to Joshua Weaver, Principal; Student Council Advisors Mrs. Hummel, Mr. Quinton and Miss Karlo; and Spirit Club Advisors Mrs. Stankowski, Ms. Hepler, and Mrs. Daymont .
