  • Lane Participates in "Blessings in a Backpack"

    This school year, Lane Elementary will be participating in the Blessings in a Backpack program, an organization that provides meals for qualifying students on the weekends. Over 45,000 students countywide receive meal assistance during the week, however, many of our families struggle on the weekends. Blessings in a Backpack received both the 2012 charity of the year award and a spotlight with People magazine. Their mission is to partner “with America to ensure impoverished elementary school children are fed on the weekends throughout the school year.” Their vision is “better test scores, improved reading skills, positive behavior, improved health and increase attendance.” As Lane Elementary also strives to create a collaborative culture of global thinkers and learners, we feel this program will help us support our families as well as achieve our mission, vision, and core values. If your family qualifies for free and reduced lunch, your child is eligible to participate in the Blessings in a Backpack program, and once the program is implemented he or she can receive a bag of non-perishable food every Friday for the remainder of the school year. Backpacks will be dispensed in a discreet and caring manner. There is no cost associated to this program, and participation is confidential. If you would like to participate in this program, and believe your family would qualify, please contact either Jaime Holtzman or Bessie Fealey, the school counselors at Lane. If you'd like more information, visit the program's website at

    To support the "Blessings in a Backpack" project, the PTA will host a "Give Back" Night on Thursday, November 20th from 6:30 to 8 p.m. During this event, the PTA and other volunteers will help stuff backpacks. Watch Wednesday folders for more information!
