Ever wonder what 'wrap-around services' mean?
Here at The Next Step, we envision a world in which all youth receive an excellent education and the support they need to realize their full potential as human beings and contributing members of society.
That means that we strive for all of our students receive the support that they need to realize their full potential.
This is why The Next Step PCS is happy to announce the creation of our on-site food pantry. The food pantry was started to alleviate hunger issues in our school community. Initially, The Next Step PCS started distributing bags of food monthly. In November 2017, we distributed 75 bags of food to our students and families. In December 2017, we distributed 100 bags of food. The need for food was so great that the school decided to create an on-site food pantry where students can have accessibility to nutritional food items at all times of the month.
The Next Step PCS partners with Community Schools to stock our food pantry monthly. Items from the food pantry are unlimited. Students have a various selection of foods they can choose from such as dairy, fruit, pasta, and canned goods. During the winter holiday months, The Next Step PCS has also been able to secure perishable foods such as turkeys, ham, and eggs through partnerships with other organizations.
Good food fuels strong minds and bodies!
