Happenings at Cambridge Elementary
There’s to be a ribbon cutting Dec. 6 at Cambridge Elementary School to unveil the school’s new outdoor classroom. The Alamo Heights Fire Department will be on hand, along with food trucks. H-E-B at Lincoln Heights is donating refreshments. This project is the fruition of fundraising events held last year by Cambridge families.
Snack Paks 4 Kids is a new program that serves 45 children and their younger siblings with snack packs for the weekend and long holiday breaks. Counselors’ offices are also stocked with food for students who need a snack during the day. PTO volunteers order the food and pack the bags each week. Funding has come from Grace Fellowship Church, AlamoHeights United Methodist Church, First Presbyterian Church and KLFSA.
The program ensures that children’s hunger pangs do not prevent them from concentrating on academic learning and social development. The school held a fall fitness fundraiser Nov. 15 at Cambridge Field to raise funds for a shade structure for the playground. The goal is to raise $65,000.
Get ready to lick those fingers! Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers opened its sixth San Antonio location at 8402 Broadway (inside Loop 410). The Louisiana-based chain is known for its ONE LOVE-quality chicken finger meals. And what makes Raising Cane’s so special? The fresh premium chicken tenderloins are marinated 24 hours, so you’ll never find frozen stuff here. Try the crinkle-cut fries, Texas toast and creamy coleslaw, and don’t forget Cane’s tangy sauce made fresh daily. Who is Raising Cane? A dog. The owner named his first restaurant after his beloved yellow lab, Raising Cane. Raising Cane II now picks up where Raising Cane left off. He can be spotted at restaurants and community activities or checking in at the restaurant support office.
And what’s a CANIAC? You will just have to hurry over and see for yourself. Raising Cane’s is a friendly neighbor very involved in giving back to the community, and judging by the parking lot and overflow, it’s ONE LOVE at first bite!
