The Pony Pride Committee communicated with the county food pantry about their needs in terms of food that they needed and cereal was one of their main needs. The Pony~ Pride Committee part- nered with the PRAS Stu— dent Council from the high school to make this a school-wide event. The week ofNov. 15 started a cereal drive at the school with each class collecting boxes of cereal to be do- nated to the local food pantry. Students inPre—K— 12 were encouraged to bring in boxes of cereal all week. Thursday of that week, the fifth and sixth VGrade boys basketball team had a “Cereal Box Scrim- mage” where fifth and sixth grade boys were split up into, four different teams: The Rice Krispies, Cheerios, Lucky Charms, and Apple Jacks. Each team was coached by a pair of high school boy “ students that volunteered their time and enthusi- asm to help make this event possible. The stu— dents and spectators were encouraged to bring cere- al to donate while watch- ing the scrimmage, this event alone brought in over 40 boxes.
