This year our Kindergarteners have chosen hunger as their service learning topic.  After organizing a food drive for the Backpack Buddies program, the Kindergartners took a trip to visit the Arlington Food Assistance Center to deliver their food.  Thanks to the help of the entire ACDS community, Kindergarten collected 460 pounds of single serving items for homeless children to take home from school on Friday afternoon to last the weekend.  The students toured the food bank and learned about how AFAC helps the hungry people of Arlington.  They also learned that families are encouraged to volunteer and participate in Family Bagging Nights, the second Monday of every month.
