Bobcat students and staff throughout Marshalltown Schools are sporting new water bottles thanks to a generous donation from JBS Marshalltown and UFCW Local 1149 this week. 

The 4,655 new water bottles will support health and safety within the schools by ensuring each person has access to their own personal water container throughout the day. Personal water containers are among the multiple health and safety strategies MCSD has implemented this school year in response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Marshalltown Schools is incredibly grateful for our ongoing community partnerships with UFCW Local 1149 and with JBS Marshalltown, which donated thousands of face masks for this summer’s MHS Commencement Ceremony Such strong community partnerships are crucial to the health, safety, and success of Bobcat students and the Marshalltown community. 

Fisher Elementary first grade students in Mandi Nunn’s class were happy to receive their personal water bottles Tuesday.
