Thanksgiving Food Drive

Did you know that one in four Cook County residents is considered to be food insecure? They do not have reliable access to enough affordable, nutritious food for themselves or their families. However, there are resources available to help, including our very own Westchester Food Pantry. The Westchester Food Pantry is in need of non-perishable food items. We will be collecting food items beginning November 13th through November 20th to help the Westchester Food Pantry provide their clients a Thanksgiving dinner.

Items being sought include instant potatoes/boxed side dishes, canned yams, stuffing, Jiffy mix, cream of mushroom soup, canned fruits and vegetables, fried onions, applesauce and condiments such as pickles and olives. Everyday items on the pantry's most wanted list are: soup, canned fruit, peanut butter jelly, snack foods, pasta, and pasta sauce.

Car Number System

To prepare for dismissal during the cold and rainy months, please make sure to have your pick-up number visible on the driver side dashboard starting Monday. Please make sure your child knows your pick-up number and listens carefully in order to be ready to leave when you arrive. Any child who is picked up without a visible number will have to be picked up in the office. Please contact the office at 708-562-1509 if you have any questions.
