In the weeks leading to Thanksgiving, students in all grades at The School decorated bags in which Thanksgiving food was donated and delivered to people living with HIV-AIDS, cancer, or other serious illnesses. Grade 2 also held a canned food drive, and all food collected was donated to a local food pantry run by Community Impact at Columbia University, which works to support local families. Also, on Friday, Dec. 6, class 5B will work with Columbia University students and the program Community Lunch, to prepare and distribute more than 100 bag lunches to individuals in need in the community.
Additionally, students at The School have continued their focused penny collection for Penny Harvest throughout November. Pennies will continue to be collected after the break, up to Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Please stay tuned in coming weeks for information from Class Parents and the Parents Association about additional holiday service projects at The School. Thank you to students and families for all you contribute!
