Good afternoon, WMS families: As you may know, our Falcon's Nest program has proved to be hugely successful this year. Led by the enormous efforts of Amie Boucher, one of our Student Liaisons, our Falcon's Nest has been providing snacks, food and clothing for many of our students and families. We are proud to support our community and to help ensure that our families who might be in need of a helping hand can count on us to help. We know that many of our students experience more food insecurity in the summer months when they are not able to have breakfast and lunch here at school. To try to help with that, Amie will be putting together several dozen food and toiletry boxes for the families we know need some help. This is where you come in. Amie has set up a SignUp link to help us get donations of the requested food items so she can create boxes of non-perishable staples to send home at the end of the school year. Please consider following this link and signing up for one or more of the items we need to complete these boxes. Thank you, as always, for the support you give our community.
