Halstead Academy Network
Halstead Academy joined the Network in November, 2019
Halstead Academy has students in grades K-5 with a current enrollment of 522 students. Of these, 77.7% live in severe poverty: 406 qualify for Free Meals, 180 depend on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and 23 are currently identified as homeless. Many others live in families who make too much to qualify for meal assistance, but not enough to make ends meet.
The lead volunteers are Ashlee Alem and Mary James, who work with school staff to fulfill student needs and stock and organize the room for students, now known as the Care Closet. Please feel free to contact Ashlee and Mary for current donation needs
