Poe Elementary School students Luke Nguyen and Caroline Szulc (pictured, from left) picked up to-go dinner orders to raise money for the school’s PTO. The PTO organized a “spirit night” for families to take a night off from cooking dinner and instead get their meals from Local Foods in Rice Village. Families could drive through and pick up their meals to take home. For each dinner order, Local Foods donated 20 percent of the proceeds to the Poe PTO. The money raised will be used for classroom supplies, educational enrichment programs, need-based uniforms and supplies for students, and development of outdoor learning spaces.
