The “Backpacks-to-Go” Program is sponsored by our FRSD community which includes our PTO, teachers, students and their families, and area friends.  The program is coordinated by the school counselors and parent volunteers.  We provide a backpack filled with easy-to-prepare meals and snacks for weekends to our children.  This program was developed in response to ongoing student needs with no weekend access to the school breakfast and/or lunch program.

How Can You Support the “Backpack-to-Go” Program to help our children? Please donate to the Sloan food drive!  Our goal is to collect wholesome meals and snacks that a child can prepare themselves if necessary.  While all donations are welcome, we prefer that any family considering a donation provide the following items in small serving sizes, easy open, non-breakable (no glass please) containers. Please have your children bring in the donations that will be collected in bags in their classrooms or feel free to drop off donations with the greeter anytime during school hours.  THANK YOU for your support!
