A December of Generosity (It's our Superpower!)
We learned about Veterans during our assembly last month, now we want to practice generosity. Our Anderson Student Council recognized a wayour students can be generous towards Homeless Veterans in our area. Each grade level is asked to donate a specific item that will be delivered to the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans in Wheaton, IL. I can’t wait to see how much we can help others. Generosity is one of our Superpowers! See the list below and ask your child if they would like to be generous and help others in need.
5th Grade: Laundry Pods (Soap)
4th Grade: Garbage Bags (Any size)
3rd Grade: Toothpaste/Toothbrushes
2nd Grade: Quart-Sized Ziplock Bags
1st. Grade: Cleaning Supplies (towels, sponges, scrubbers)
Kindergarten: Reusable Bags (New)
