Look at all the trash they pulled out of the creek! This was a great job by these students.
For my service project I worked with my grandmother to design an art project from my class to complete together for the fundraising auction at our school. We designed an under the sea collage. My class divided into groups and each completed a square. Marmee and I painted the background, and my group did the treasure chest square. We named it “Shark Bottom”. The golden shark is the one I made. It was lots of fun, and here is a picture of it all finished.
For my community service project my Kindergarten class and I each wrote a letter to a soldier thanking them for their service to our country. On the opposite side of the page we used small pieces of white and red construction paper and some stars to create an American flag.
My mom is going to send all of our letters to an organization called www.amillionthanks.org and from there they will be distributed to an American soldier.
So now they have their heads shaved and all for a good cause. They raised money to help St. Baldricks and their Cure Cancer Drive. Our 3 students and a dad raised hundreds of dollars in this effort.
Thanks to all of them for making all of us aware of the work that needs to be done. Click here to see Jimmy’s Story.
Ryan says: We delivered some food to the place called the Lighthouse Shelter. Its a place where people can go tot get food because they are hungry and they don’t have any money to buy themselves any food. We brought them food because they said they really needed some help and so we asked what they needed and we went to Target and got some of the things. And then my sister Hailey and I delivered the bas to the Lighthouse Shelter. Well I hope the people can have some food now. (6 years old.)
Hailey says: We got to Target and mom got some food for the Lighthouse Shelter. Some of the things we got were peanut butter, cans of vegetables, cherieos, rice and strawberries. It made me feel happy to give to people who can’t afford money and now they can have some food to eat so hopefully they will like the food we gave to them.
I like doing this, maybe I will be able to do it alot but I want to help buy the food next time. I am looking froward to be helpful to the Lighthouse Shelter. It was fun!
PS. At first I didn’t want to write this but now that I did I feel real good.
When I walk along the big road near my house, I notice a lot of trash. People throw their trash on the ground and it’s wrong. I wanted to do something to help.
I made signs reminding people not to litter. The signs show pictures of animals so people will know that littering hurts animals. We put the signs up on the fence along the road where people litter the most.
I got my little brother Teddy to help me, and we loaded up our wagon with trash. We picked up the litter on the road and filled a big trash bag with all the litter. It was really gross but now the side of the road looks much better.
Emma went to the park and saw that there was trash left behind by others. She chose to take the lead and clean it up. She picked up the trash and showed what we call in our school Super Responsibility. That is, she took on a task by cleaning up a mess that she did not make. She did this task because it was the “right thing to do”. Back in October we talked about being a R.A.D. person, Reliable, Accountable, Dependable. Emma is RAD!!
Your child can learn to be RAD too. Join us in our classes as we teach martial arts and life skills.
My service project was to help collect gifts for the Kidsico Orphange in Mongomu,Kenya. Our youth group at church made denim bags for each of the kids and we filled them with little toys and school supplies.
I picked out the animals in the picture. We made flash cards with the names of the animals in English and Swahili. The pastor in Africa sent us pictures of the kids with the presents we sent. I think they really liked my gift!
