Programs and Events

volunteers make light workOperation Hope Lunches Community Service Project.

Our beloved tradition to provide 45 bagged lunches on a weekly basis will kick off for the school year right after Labor Day.  We have streamlined this project and Marcello’s deli now delivers all the necessary grocery items to make sandwiches.  Woods teachers have signed up on a rotating basis to assemble the lunches during home room on Wednesday mornings. We just need volunteers to deliver the lunches as well as donations of non-perishable food  items.  Check the FWMS PTSA MySchoolAnywhere volunteer sign up to volunteer. Contact: Hannah Geriak
