Giving Back During the HolidaysThe holidays are a time for giving, and as you know, our schools are doing their part in giving back to those in need. We greatly appreciate all the parent support with these initiatives, in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. The donations not only matter to those who receive them, but our students are so proud to help others.

Below are just a few ways we’re giving back this year.

  1. Students will visit senior centers to enjoy holiday meals with residents, sing carols, distribute handmade cards, and decorate ornaments.
  2. Students will work together to collect food for families in need. Students will deliver their donations to the food bank, tour the facility and learn about how their contributions will help others.
  3. Some schools will host gift drives for local children’s hospitals. Students will collect art supplies, coloring books, games, and movies for children to enjoy while they are receiving treatment at the hospital.
  4. Students will spread holiday cheer by delivering cookies to community helpers. They’ll measure and mix ingredients, roll the dough, place the baked goodies in boxes, and deliver them with handmade cards.
  5. Some of our schools will collect winter coats, mittens and hats this month. Students are encouraged to will deliver them to a local homeless shelter.
  6. Many of our schools will have a giving tree in the lobby where families can choose a tag and purchase a gift for a child in need.
  7. Students will participate in a “wish week” to collect money for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. They’ll wrap gifts, auction off artwork, decorate ornaments, sell cookies, and much more to raise funds.
