For our first grade project, we partner up with the food pantry. This is such a tough project though, as many of our students (in our building) most likely get some of their food through Good Samaritan. However, ever little bit counts and assists those families in need. We decided that we would try to boost it and make it a building wide effort. We are nearing our 100th day of school, so we set up a goal. We were asking all grade levels (there's 3 classes per grade in our building) to donate 100 cans by our 100th day of school. As of now, our 100th day is projected to be on February 13th. Awesome that this is so close to Valentine's Day too. Can you think of a better way to help spread the love???
Do any of your schools or buildings do things like this? Would love to hear what you do! :)
By the way, have you seen my Valentine's Activities? Here's a sneak peek.
