Carson Elementary will be partnering up with Mallory Orthodontics and participating in a program called “Live Thankfully”. We will be providing and delivering Christmas dinners to Carson families who are less fortunate. Please help us in our quest to provide non-perishable foods to fill-up our Live Thankfully tubs. As a community, we will also participate in a “Party with a Purpose” on Sunday, December 13th, where Decatur families and students will actually package the meals and prepare them for delivery. Please look at the list below to determine what your child’s class is responsible for. Please send those items with your child as soon as possible. We are only collecting until December 12th. Please mark your calendar for December 13th for the “Party with a Purpose” packing party at 5:00 at the Multi-Purpose Building behind the middle school.

Our fantastic Dyslexia teacher, Robyn Mahoney has begun a project on DonorsChoose.Org in order to put tablets in the hands of her dyslexia students. She has found an app that will load hundreds of books for students to read at home. She would like to send the tablets loaded with books home with the students. The Donors Choose website is a way for people around the world to donate to the cause. If you would like more information check out her link http://www.donorschoose.org/project/1789630
