Sat., February 3 - Bates Elementary School - Third, fourth, and fifth graders from Yake will once again have an opportunity to participate in this year’s Kids Against Hunger event. Students from Yake will work with students from other schools in an effort to pack over 35,000 meals.  Flyers for this event have been sent home. This event provides a great opportunity for our Gators to help others in need and contribute to making a positive difference in the world. If your child is able to help, please return the completed permission slip with $5 as soon as possible.
We are also looking for parent volunteers (see positions below) to help us make this event a great success.  If you are interested in helping, please e-mail Megan Crane.

Volunteers will stay with the students, sit with them during the presentation, help them rotate between the different production jobs, and be a cheerleader for the students.
