F. A. Q.

What does "B.A.G.S. for tomorrow" stand for?

Building Academic Groton Students for Tomorrow. The idea behind this is children take bags of nutritious food home to supplement their weekend meals so that they may come back to school on Monday ready to grow academically.

How does the BAGS for tomorrow program work?

BAGS for Tomorrow works with the school to provide complimentary snacks and meals to students who may need an additional food resource over the weekend during the school year. The food is given to the child before he/she leaves school each Friday, or in case of a holiday, the last day before the break. Food bags will be placed in the lockers of students signed up for the program.

Who is eligible for the BAGS for tomorrow program?

Any child enrolled at Groton Area Elementary is eligible. People and organizations that put the bags together will not know the identities of the students receiving the food. Student and family names will be kept confidential.

When will the program begin?

The program will began at the end of January 2012. The program resumes each fall when there will be a new sign up form to fill out for the upcoming school year.
