  • 4th Grade visits SHARE

    On Tuesday, November 13 and Wednesday, November 14, Manoa’s 4th grade students went on a field trip to SHARE food program. SHARE is a non-profit organization that distributes thousands of pounds of food to the community. Before taking the trip, classes discussed the importance of teamwork and the importance of helping our community by doing community service. The 4th graders helped package meals for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. They were in charge of packaging fruits and vegetables including oranges, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, apples, kiwi, carrots and onions. They checked each box to make sure they were complete, closed them up and stacked them on a palate, ready to distribute to the community. The fourth graders had to work together when they packed and moved boxes.Fourth graders also helped weigh onions and bag them to eventually pack into boxes. It felt great to help the greater Philadelphia community during the Thanksgiving season! Click to see pictures.
