First Grade Giving Back Project hits major goal!

We raised $3,618!!!  Teachers will purchase the items the shelter needs over the course of the Thanksgiving break.  First Grade students will be preparing bags of necessities for each child at the shelter, and wrapping gifts for the shelter, the week we return from Thanksgiving break.  On Thursday, December 5th, our students will take a field trip to the “Bridge Shelter” for homeless kids and teens.  We will deliver bags to each child staying at the shelter,  tour the facilities, and perform for the students and staff!  We will also deliver “big ticket” items that the shelter needs to help them care for, and entertain, the children who live there 24 hours a day.  Members of our staff visited the shelter today to plan out details for our trip.  We are very excited for the kids to have this opportunity to go and truly feel what it is to give to others!  Thanks so much for your support!
