December Service

It is BIG month for service in our community, a time to give!

Our first service project was today's card-making.  We started out today making cards to go with the school's care packages for our troops overseas.  Our students really got into the spirit, and on the own came up with thoughtful messages.

"We haven't forgotten about you."
"We haven't forgotten about you."

"Happy Holidays!"
"Happy Holidays and Thank You!"

Our cards will go out with the packages Monday.

Our second service project is collecting small items to go with Meals on Wheels.  Drivers for Meals on Wheels would like to provide small gifts to deliver during the holidays.  As many of you know, sometimes a Meals on Wheels driver is the only visitor an elderly or disabled person might get during the week, and a small thing can make a big difference in that week!  

Gifts that would be appreciated include:
warm, study socks
gloves
towel sets
heating pads
lap robes
slippers
toothpaste/toothbrushes
detergent
shampoo/lotion/soap
tea or coffee

Gift donations may be delivered to our classroom or the service shelf in the middle school by December 17th.  Thank you!
