Oregon Food Bank Field Trip

Every Tuesday and Friday I hope to have our students participate as authors on the blog. Today we are featuring our first student blogger, A.W. This very bright and talented student wants to share about her favorite learning experience this year. Here she is...

This year my favorite thing we did was go on our field trip to the Oregon Food Bank. There we packaged pasta into two- pound bags to be redistributed to people in Oregon and SE Washington. It was fun because we all must have laughed trying to tape the boxes with the awkward tape gun. I remember how scared everyone was because we had to wear hair nets.Also, going to the food bank was a easy way to help people. I think a lot of us will agree that the best part was meeting the Trailblazers' coach.He was so tall-I think he was 6'4". I remember that someone asked for a basketball the Trailblazers had practiced with. Sadly, the coach did not have any with him. That day was full of new experiences and one I will never forget.
Packing pasta with glamorous hair nets!
Getting a lot of food ready for the community
5th grade with Portland Trailblazer Coach- highlight of the day!


  1. Go A.W I remember that, that was so fun!

  2. A.W. did a great job as our first student blogger. I loved this day. We worked so hard and nobody complained. I loved the we were working for the common good of our community! Thanks for commenting Julia!

  3. Another student blogger wanted to write about the field trip. One thing that E.S. added that she liked that the food was there to help families that needed it. Her favorite part of the trip was volunteering to help families who need emergency food. I agree E.S., that was my favorite part of the trip as well.

  4. that was so fun.! when we saw the Blazers coach, i didn't even know who he was so i had to ask several people who he was. haha.
