Weekend Backpack Program-We continue to try and help the Town recreation department who so generously runs this program for some students in our town. They provide families with some extra snacks for the weekends and evenings. They are in need of donations and here at Callahan we are going to help. We are looking for students to bring in a box of Tuna Fish and/or single servings meals like beefaroni, ravioli, spaghetti o’s with meatballs, etc. Students can bring these items into their homeroom teachers.
