# Mrs. Lyons' Class: Week 7

## Service Project Results

Thank you so much for bringing in your service project items! My homeroom had 100% student participation! Many doubled their donation and some even went as far as bringing up to 8 times as much as asked! Thank you so much! We will be adding the final touches to our boxes tomorrow and they will be picked up on Tuesday. The kids made some very cute cards to put in the box. I know they will love it. Thank you so much!

Please send the following pictures to school with your child sometime this week if possible.
