The 5th grade student council will be having a food drive of non-perishable goods in honor of a visit from Dr. Rashba. Dr. Rashba is sponsored by the PTO and is coming to Bancroft to do folk songs with the lower grades as well as a program about the civil rights movement for the upper grades. Dr. Rashba has asked for this food drive as a way to encourage the kids to help others. The student council will collect donations in each classroom starting Thursday January 6th and ending the day Dr. Rashba visits, Thursday January 13th. All food collected will be donated to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank.
