POLSON – Around this time each year, the orchards surrounding Polson are home to an influx of migrant workers who come for the cherry harvest. While the parents of migrant families are busy spending long days harvesting fruit, they can turn to Polson Middle School for supervision of their children, where a caring group of teachers and students from the school district offer a healthy and educational home away from home for those in need.

The migrants who fill the orchards along Flathead Lake are predominantly Hispanic families from the heavily agricultural communities of central Washington.
