A BOUNTIFUL HARVEST — Eldorado Middle School 6th graders are shown above with more than 1,100 food items collected with the help of students K-12. The service learning project began in October when the 6th graders traveled to San Angelo to tour the Concho Valley Food Bank. After the tour, they went to a San Angelo grocery store to work in groups on a math activity to buy canned goods and non-perishable items. The class winners in Elementary were Mrs. Beach’s fourth graders with 91 items while Mrs. Whitten’s fifth graders were the winners in Middle School with 253 food items. All food items were donated to the local food pantry at the Community Resource Center.  | COURTESY PHOTO
