Be Connected to Our Classroom

The 4th Grade Giving Tree

Every year each grade level chooses to donate items to people in need. This year 4th grade has chosen to support the Fort Atkinson Food Pantry. Outside our classroom a "Giving Tree" with ornaments has been set up. Each ornament has a specific item that the Fort Pantry needs. Please consider encouraging your child to take an ornament off the tree to donate to people in need this holiday season. The final day to donate items to the Food Pantry will be Tuesday December 22nd.
