Birthday box project in Mrs. Vescovo's kindergarten class

Thank you to Mrs. Vescovo's class for putting together a birthday box for Cornerstone children to celebrate their own birthdays this month! During their recent celebration of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, Mrs. Vescovo's class wanted to serve others the way they learned that Dr. King served his community. From the creation of a party supply list, card making, box painting and assembly of goodie bags, this group of KDG students led the way with caring and service!
