San Antonio Food Bank - Pre-K & Kinder
The Pre kinder and kindergarten service project is for a great cause. They collected peanut butter and macaroni and cheese for the San Antonio food bank. The food bank almost never has peanut butter to spare. The food bank will give some food to people that barely get one meal a day and struggle to get money.

Down Syndrome Organization - 1st Grade
We visited 1st grade Mrs. Cardenas class to know more about their service project. They made ornaments for the Down Syndrome Organization and collect toys for the kids. The 1st grade students helped by making ornaments and encouraging their parents to bring a present for the children in the organization. The first graders learned helping others, synergizing, and thinking about others before yourself.

Soldiers Angels - 3rd grade
This year for the 3rd grade service project they raised money for a charity called Soldiers Angels. They collected $350 worth of coins and made cards for the soldiers who were in the Veterans Hospital. The money was used to buy blankets and sand scarves for Soldiers in Afghanistan. It was inspiring to help those that help keep us safe.

Pennies for the Playground - 4th grade
4th grade presents Pennies for the Playground. This project is about donating money for children in hospitalized. They want to build a special playground for the children that need it and can’t go to an average playground. The students contribute by donating money to the hospital .When they get a donation, they celebrate. They check every week for a new donation. They also send holiday cards to the hospitals.

Braided Dog Toys - 5th grade
We interviewed Mrs. Garcia for the 5th grade service project. The project was to make braided dog toys to donate to an animal shelter. The students think this project was important because the dogs don’t have owners to buy them toys. For the project, students got 3 pieces of fleece and tied a knot, then braided it and finally they tied a knot at the end.
Hope those dogs had a "fleece Navidad"!!!
