MBE Service Projects


4th Grade:  December

Fourth grade will be coordinating the service project for the month of December for North hill Nursing Home and rehabilitation Facility.  They will be providing Christmas for low income residents who are alone, with no one to celebrate with for the holidays.  The collected items will be the following:  sweatshirts, gloves, snacks, toiletries, blackets, and other trinkets.  The students will collect, wrap, and deliver these items in two weeks.  Having students actively participate in service has added a special layer of compassion and empathy to their character education.  


Fifth Grade:  November

In conjunction with the Veterans Day  program, the 5th grade will be putting together comfort bags for the VA as well as Hayes Elementary.  For this particular service project, donations will only be collected from 5th grade.


In a gallon size resealable bag please include any of the following:  playing cards, puzzle books, deodorant, powder, lotion, comb/brush, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrush, emery board, nail clippers, or tissue packets. 

Due by November 5th.
