Students buy items for Angel Food Drive


Some chores the students said they did around their homes were laundry, washing dishes, putting away things, helping with outside work, cleaning, and helping out with pets.

“The purpose of this was to make math relevant for the kids, they need to learn math through problem-solving,” Cintas said. “This teaches the kids about helping others in the community and how that one person can make a difference. Every little bit helps and every little bit we did added up to a lot all together.”

There were chaperones that went with the students on the field trip to the stores on Tuesday, and people at the store and people working at the store were very responsive to what they were doing.

“The Kroger manager said that if I contact him earlier, he can try to speak with his corporate office to see if they could get us a better deal,” Cintas said.

Cintas said she would like to do this every year, but some things she would change would be extending the time between getting the money and going to the store to get the items. She says she would rather have more time to do more math with the students in that time.

“It was the first time I’ve done this, but I think it was very successful, the kids were very excited about it,” she said. “I’m very proud of all of them.”

Items that were bought in bulk for the Angel Food Drive included 315 canned goods such as fruits and vegetables, 132 boxes of pasta, 119 jars of pasta sauce, 46 jars of peanut butter and 46 jars of jelly, 40 boxes of cereal, 162 boxes of macaroni and cheese, 97 boxed meals, and 133 cans of soup.
