If you had a sea of candy and graham crackers in front of you, what would be on your mind? Probably, lots of sixth graders would be thinking about which candy they'd choose to eat, but a group of sixth graders at Glenmoor Elementary School has chosen something different. Their choice is to put on plastic gloves, dig into the frosting, and use their creative energy to make the Christmas holiday brighter for some families in need.
For many years, the sixth graders at Glenmoor Elementary School have been making, decorating and donating gingerbread houses for Tri-City Volunteers, Inc. This year, the group donated 47 houses to families in need of some Christmas cheer. It has become quite a tradition for the sixth graders at this school, and each student feels a sense of pride as they donate their work of art to the charity organization.
The Student Council at Glenmoor Elementary School has also done their part to help the people in our community. Each year, the group works hard to donate stuffed stockings full of personal hygiene items, sweet treats, gloves, hats, etc. to children between the ages of 5 and 12. The stockings are also donated to Tri-City Volunteers, Inc. The agency then distributes the stockings to the children who need them the most. This year, the families and the Student Council from Glenmoor School donated over 100 beautifully stuffed stockings.
The community spirit of giving is apparent at Glenmoor Elementary School. Happy Holidays!
