Polk Middle School Spreads Holiday Cheer

Ted Polk Middle School students and staff have been spreading the holiday cheer and promoting the season of giving this November and December. This year, the Ted Polk campus created “The Panther Holiday Service Program”. It is a program created to make a difference by donating items and conducting collection drives to aid local families living in the Polk feeder school system. The Holiday Service Program includes school wide programs for our Family Christmas Adoption Program, a holiday basket project, a can food drive for Metrocrest Services, and collection for miscellaneous household supplies and toiletries. During the months of November-December, the campus raised a little over $2,500 for these initiatives.

Some of the program highlights include:
  • collected over 1,500 canned food items 
  • created 30 food baskets for Polk and feeder school families 
  • adopted 15 families (a total of 43 kids- between the ages of 10 months to 18yrs)
