Our 4th grade students participated in the King Arthur Learn Bake Share Program and baked bread from scratch with their families. Over 100 loaves of bread were taken to St. Jude Catholic Church's food pantry on Tuesday for them to be able to distribute to those in the community in need. What a great gift!


The following 4th grade students won the opportunity to deliver the bread with Mrs. Eastlick and Mrs. Dressel: Carley Mitchamore, Ava, Emerson, Austin Callis, D'Aren Igho-Osagie, Noah Barton, Sterling Butler, and Rylee White.

GIVING

Wow! My heart is overflowing with pride as I think of all of the ways our students have been showing kindness this holiday season.
-3rd grade sponsored an Angel Tree family. They brought in over $1000 in donations and then went shopping together as a group Thursday evening.
-School wide canned food drive brought in almost 1500 items! These are going to Wesley Mission Center and families with ties to WBE.
-Toys for Tots - Mansfield area brought in over 26,000 toys!
-4th grade bread donations to local food bank...over 100 loaves!

I am so proud of our students and families as they give to others and take care of their fellow mankind.

Running Club

After Saturday’s race, the running club will be taking a break. We will start up again late February. If you didn’t get a chance to join and would like to, we would love to have you. However, I cannot guarantee that you will be able to get a running club tshirt. More info will come next year. -Mrs. Gray
