Holy Rosary Preschoolers Help the Hungry

While learning about the letter H, the Pre-K students
brainstormed the words HELP and HUNGRY. Their
discussion that followed led them to the idea of the First
Annual Pre-K Food Drive. They collected several large
boxes of food which they then placed on the shelves in the
St. Vincent de Paul food room. They were delighted to do
their part to "Help the Hungry" right here in our West
Seattle community.
