Lakeland Elementary Gives Back

Students join community to donate to good cause.

Lakeland Elementary teamed up with neighboring friends from Valley Creek Church to help “Serve the City.”

Community members pack bags for foster children

Lakeland students from each grade level collected donated essential items —toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorants, coloring books, pajamas, stuffed animals and more— for students in foster care.

These care bags were packed for the Denton Child Advocacy Center and were created for elementary-aged children all the way to high school students.

Together, the school and church packed 100 bags for the cause.

Finding a way to share kindness in the community, like making these donation bags, is just another great way Lakeland students are learning to give back.
