The second grade are doing their annual service project, Loose Change for Food. They will be collecting loose change starting today, May 13 through Friday, May 17. Why are they doing this? The second grade social studies core asks them to identify and participate in a local civic activity. They will be donating they earn to the loocal food bank. Each dollar they earn streches to more than two for the food bank. For example, if they earn $200 then the food bank can buy $500 worth of food. They will aslo be practicing math skills: adding money and graphing. Last year they earned $655.00 (can we beat that this year?).
Please have your child check through couch cushions, the car, under the bed or do some chores to earn some loose change and bring it in (they accept dollars, too).
The second grade teachers thatn kyou as they teach their students to think of others and provide food for those less fortunate.
