The Columbian

WOODLAND — Students and staff at Woodland Public Schools donated 2,955 pounds of canned and dried food to the Woodland Action Center during November’s districtwide food drive.

Woodland Middle School won the competition by collecting 1,120 pounds. North Fork Elementary School collected 1,053 pounds; Columbia Elementary, 271 pounds; and Woodland High School, 61 pounds. In defense of the high school’s smaller showing, students had just held a food drive as part of Homecoming Week.

Members of the district’s administrative team including Safety and Facilities Director Scott Landrigan, Business Manager Stacy Brown, and Assistant Superintendent Asha Riley visited each school to collect and help load donations. Leadership classes at the elementary schools helped coordinate and market the food drive.
