5th Grade Gives Back


By Lilah ElAshry Weaver

For the month of December, ending on the 19th, hats, gloves, mittens, coats, and children’s books were collected at our school. What we collected was donated to the Mount Vernon Head Start Program for low income families with kids ages 3-5. This event was organized by Dawn Bloise, and the Siwanoy 5th graders. Clothes were supposed to be new or lightly used winter gear in kid’s sizes 3-6.  Thank you to everyone that donated kids winter gear and books. The children at Mt. Vernon Head Start will be warmer this winter thanks to you!
