McGraw Wins Cans Around the Oval Challenge

Congratulations to the McGraw community for participating in Cans Around the Oval.  Werner Elementary challenged us to see which school could collect the most canned food for the Larimer County Food Bank and we won! As a result, Mr. Brinkman will wear a tutu and Ms. Smith will wear a mustache to school all day on Tuesday, October 28th. We have also invited our students and staff to participate and they too can wear a mustache and/or tutu to school tomorrow.

A special thank you to Cub Scout Pack 116 who presented a check to McGraw for $108 to donate to Cans Around the Oval, that they earned from their pumpkin sales!

McGraw also took 2nd place overall in the Community Schools category behind Rocky Mountain High School. Thank you so much for your generosity and competitive spirit!  See the complete published results of the Cans Around the Oval food drive below.
