CHELMSFORD — The Parker Middle School held its 10th annual “Souper Bowl” Food Drive, which benefits the Chelmsford Community Exchange (also known as the Chelmsford food pantry).
This super idea was founded by Parker's diligent principal Jeffrey Parks. More than 730 amazing students in grades 5-8 participated, as did the staff! According to Dr. Parks, the goal is to have 100 percent participation with all students and staff members donating at least one item.
The school's core values are “PRIDE — Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Dedication, Empathy. I asked all the compassionate students how they felt participating in such a worthy cause, and they all cheered and yelled “Great!”
This single event collected more than 3,100 items. Kudos, Parker Middle School! Thank you for making a difference!
